LGBTQ+ Inclusion Workshop
The first step to achieving the Lincolnshire FA LGBTQ+ Accreditation is to ensure a minimum of two club officials attend or watch a recording of an LGBTQ+ Inclusion digital workshop. Although a minimum of two club officials are required, all members of the club are welcome to attend.
This workshop will improve your knowledge of the LGBTQ+ Community, covering topics including:
• What does LGBTQ+ mean?
• Why is LGBTQ+ Inclusion important?
• Reporting discrimination
• What does an inclusive environment look like?
• How does this vary at different age groups?
• The Lincolnshire FA LGBTQ+ Accreditation
The workshop is around an hour in length and will empower the attendees in being an ally for LGBTQ+ individuals and developing an inclusive club environment.
Following the workshop, one of the club officials that attends the workshop must then become the club’s LGBTQ+ Ambassador, acting as a point of contact for any players, coaches, or spectators that may require support or guidance. Clubs may find it worthwhile to delegate the LGBTQ+ Inclusive Accredited Criteria to the Ambassador.
The first workshops will take place on Wednesday 19th October from 6:30pm to 8:30pm and on Wednesday 26th October from 6:30pm to 8:30pm. Attendees only need to attend one of the workshops.
