CHATS is a partner of Safer Spaces
Safer Spaces provides organizational assessments, professional development workshops, and consultation services to create more inclusive programs and workplaces for 2SLGBTQ+ communities.
For CHATS the Safer Spaces training reinforced our corporate values. We show respect, responsiveness, and responsibility in all we do, to those we work with and for. We value and appreciate diversity and inclusivity. This training was the beginning of a journey to create a safe and inclusive environment for our clients and increase access to services for the LGBTQ community. We were proud to have 100% of our leadership team and 30% of our frontline staff participate in the training program; and we continue to utilize the tools and resources provided to increase cultural competence across the organization.
