BRITE: Building Respect & Inclusion through Training & Education

The Center Project offers inclusivity training to any group, organization, or workplace that recognizes the importance of intentionally creating welcoming, safe, and supportive spaces for the LGBTQIA+ community. Our trainings are tailored to each group’s needs, and the information and conversation can range from introductory to advanced. 

All trainings are developed and facilitated by LGBTQIA+ community members and professionals to equip straight and cisgender people with the knowledge and resources to create spaces where LGBTQIA+ people can engage openly and thrive. 

When you attend a BRITE training, you can expect:

  • To have your assumptions about sex and gender compassionately challenged
  • To learn from facilitators who have first-hand experiences with the content
  • Opportunities for meaningful interaction with your facilitator(s) and other attendees
  • Actionable content tailored to your group’s needs
  • To build the foundation of an ongoing, mutually beneficial relationship with The Center Project
