The Macaulay Child Development Centre
The LGBTQ Inclusion Work Group team (LGBTQ is an acronym for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transsexual, Queer/Questioning) has demonstrated a strong and innovative model of teamwork and team leadership. A small group of staff members initially proposed the idea of an LGBTQ Work Group to address issues of staff knowledge and skills regarding inclusion of LGBTQ families. Group members support each other and share leadership. Various staff members across departments have become involved sharing skills, abilities and experiences. With the teams combined efforts they have made tremendous contribution within the agency, within Macaulay’s client group and beyond — reducing fear and stigma for everyone.
