Somerset County's Human Services Department has traditionally delivered monthly content to Human Services professionals and residents to empower a community of professionals and citizens with a variety of timely topics to help make a world of difference. Traditionally, these workshops have been held live, but due to COVID-19, we have moved to a Zoom platform with the added benefit of recording content to share.

JUNE 22, 2020. Are You a SOGIE Champion?

In celebration of Pride Month, the Human Services Academy focuses this month's curriculum on supporting our LGBTQIA community, particularly focusing on youth.  This webinar will take you on a deep dive into the world of LGBTQIA terminology and best practices and will leave you with tangible next steps for building a safe and inclusive space at your agency, school or workplace.

This workshop is presented by Dr. Stacy Robustelli from HiTOPS who guides us on our journey to become better allies and Danielle King, Patient Navigator from RWJ's Babs Siperstein PROUD Center in Somerville, who shares her own personal challenges and some resources she provides for her clients to round out the conversation. This presentation is designed for all youth-serving professionals such as teachers, school administrators, police and parole officers, Prosecutor’s Office personnel, mental health professionals, policy advocates, social workers, library staff, family members who wish to begin their journey in understanding LGBTQIA+ identities.
