Diversity & Inclusion Training


Diversity & Inclusion Training

Make a real difference in the world and your business or organization

Diversity refers to people with specific cultural and language needs, while inclusion refers to how to address, include, and embrace all people into your organization. I specialize in training to build relationships with the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) communities. 


Programs can be customized to meet the particular professional development needs and size of any group or organization. 

Coach specific trainings 

Fellow coaches, you can make a difference in the lives of your LGBT clients (whom you might not even know you have!) Learn how to build a relationship with your LGBT clientele that will honor the very foundation of a coach/client relationship, including rapport, trust, and confidentiality. 

Understanding the needs of LGBT clients allows coaches to better serve their clients. The whole coaching relationshop is improved by Diversity & Inclusion Training because each party - the coach and client - benefits from the coach having more knowledge.

I also provide ways to attract and maintain profitable LGBT client relationships, and why this benefits the coach, coaching organization, and LGBT clientele.

Health and Wellness Coach specific trainings 

For Health and Wellness Coaches, understanding the health disparities within the LGBT population is crucial  to optimally working with them. Research shows that "sexual orientation and gender identity are among the many factors that affect patient experiences before, during, and after interactions with healthcare providers. "

My Diversity and Inclusion Training for fellow Health and Wellness Coaches covers issues such as health disparities and stress due to discrimination and stigma. Discussions include ways to know your clients as individuals who experience social, structural, and interpersonal challenges that can impact their experience, thus health, wellness, and well-being.
