Toronto Pflag is pleased to conduct workshops and presentations for businesses and community groups to share information about diversity, promoting acceptance, how to be an ally, and our personal experiences as inclusive families. We share our knowledge about how to better support LGBTQ2S+ persons in the workplace, or colleagues who may be parents of LGBTQ2S+ loved ones. Volunteer speakers begin with their personal story and explain terminology. The format is a 45-minute presentation followed by 15 minutes for discussion. The content and approach can be customized according to the audience, which can vary from service organizations to Bay Street lawyers and bankers.
Cost for corporate events ranges from $300 for smaller companies to $500-$3000 from larger corporations. The income from these events helps to fund our school presentation program. Larger contributions can be acknowledged with optional Sponsor status.
To arrange a Toronto Pflag workshop or presentation at your workplace or community space, please contact our office at 416-406-1727 or firstname.lastname@example.org

how to Be an ally
Our original workshop covers the basics: coming out at work, the power of allies and what you can do to make your workplace more welcoming.
All about gender
This workshop takes a deeper dive into gender. Many of us, including members of the LGBTQ2S+ community, want to understand more about gender identity, expression and lived experience.
Our newest workshop is designed for parents and grandparents. It covers inclusive parenting, gender policing, the “golden rule,” the coming out conversation, and what to do if your child says they are transgender.
To book a workshop please email email@example.com. Tell us about your workplace and give us a few dates so we can line up a volunteer.
