Gender Inclusivity For Organizations

Being a leader of an organization in today's climate is not always easy. Many leaders experience pressure in conflicting directions: some (often younger) colleagues may bring attention to a need for growth in areas like gender inclusion, while other (often senior) members may express concern around retaining traditional values and culture. It is possible to welcome gender divergent members with love and care while remaining in integrity with your community! The keys to intentional growth are access to information and open-hearted communication. This is the space Rainbow Doula Consulting creates. 

 

In sessions with your organization, we can address:

 

  • Gender 101: What does it mean to be cis, trans, non binary or gender non conforming? 

  • Brief history of the gender binary and how it operates today

  • Pronoun awareness and usage

  • How to make amends when mistakes and harm occur

  • What growth edges is this opportunity offering? How can increasing gender inclusivity benefit your community?

  • What "unfinished business" may exist within membership that effects folks' ability to effect change?

  • Safety measures for trans and non binary children and adults

  • Addressing harm which may have happened already on either the personal or collective level 

We will
 

  • Approach these topics in a way that fits your special organization

  • Keep in mind your core values and intentions

  • Commune with nature as appropriate 
     

Conflict can turn to healing when we liberate information and examine inherited bias. Let’s get curious together and work to make your organization a sanctuary for those who need it.
