April Webinar: Recognizing and Confronting Medical Mistrust Among BIPOC
As we actively aim to provide quality sex education and healthcare to communities of all backgrounds, we need to fully understand the systemic origins of current health disparities experienced by people of color. Serving as an effective youth-serving adult involves acknowledging your role in the inequitable outcomes for students of color. We will examine the historical context for the current medical mistrust, how present-day healthcare delivery contributes to medical bias, the value of cultural humility, and programs aimed to support these communities. We challenge youth-serving adults to reflect on the messages they communicate to better promote dignity in accessing care.

May Webinar: Combatting Anti- Fat Bias in Sex Education
In this webinar we will be exploring the many ways that weight stigma, sizeism, and anti-fat bias impact sexual health services and education. We will explore biases about size and how these biases can show up in classrooms and in medical care. Specifically, we’ll be talking about how conversations about size inform different topics in sex education. We will talk about what we can do to make sure we’re not only including information about all body sizes in sex education, but also working to combat anti-fat bias. Lastly, we’ll briefly examine how body image intersects with sexuality and race.
The first in a series of courses developed by sex educators at the Responsible Sex Education Institute, the Virtual Sexual Health Educator Program 1.0 takes our most popular live lessons and transforms them into a 4 or 5-week virtual course. Each cohort is limited to 15 participants to ensure that we can hear from everyone. Registrants can expect 1 hour of “on-your-own” learning per week in addition to the twice-weekly live sessions.
