P.R.I.D.E. Training

Diversity Collective is a place where you can learn, dialogue, grow, and be equipped with the knowledge and skills to be an effective change agent for our LGBTQ+ community. Our Rainbow Umbrella Program in conjunction with Ventura County Behavioral Health provides P.R.I.D.E. (Parents & Professionals' Responsibility for Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity) training, an LGBTQ+ cultural competency training designed for youth-serving organizations, volunteers, parents, and youth themselves. 

This 4-hour P.R.I.D.E. (training aims to increase your knowledge and help you examine your behavior and attitudes to improve your ability to interact with intersecting identities and decrease LGBTQ+ stigmas, biases, and stereotypes  

Through the sharing of relevant information, the incorporation of lived experiences, and interactive exercises our curriculum helps you to honor LGBTQ+ identities and create affirming spaces where individuals can be their authentic selves without fear or prejudice.

Statistics have shown it only takes one affirming individual to have a significant effect on an LGBTQ+ individual’s life, are you that one?
