Here at True Colors United, we know that making a commitment to justice, diversity, equity, and inclusion is an active choice that becomes an ongoing journey. The desire and passion to further our equity work is an incredibly brave and important decision but it can be difficult to know how to start and how to access beneficial resources. We created the Equity Hub to provide expertly-designed free trainings and resources to help organizations and individuals better address the unique needs of LGBTQ youth experiencing homelessness.
Grounded in intersectionality and racial equity, the resources provided through the Equity Hub are designed with zero-assumptions and meet everyone where they are in their journey of learning to provide a personalized experience. In the past year, the Equity Hub has provided free courses and toolkits in both English and Spanish, released content driven by young folks with lived-expertise, and developed brand new content with racial equity at the center. All of this work and we are just getting started! We are beyond thrilled to announce that we are rolling out new features to help your organization track and measure analytics to understand the impact and effectiveness of your equity standards.
New Features Promoting Equity Across Organizations
Three of the exciting brand new features include staff surveys, the ability to track course data and progress, and organizational equity standards. Through the staff surveys, you will gain an inside understanding on your staff’s competency when supporting LGBTQ and BIPOC clients. These surveys will aid you in identifying areas where there are opportunities to advance your equity practices. Through the tracking data feature, you will now be able to track your team’s progress through the platform’s online training courses. This feature can give you a better understanding of where your team is at on their learning journey so you can meet everyone where they are for the most effective and supportive experience. And through the organizational equity standards you can measure how your organization’s equity practices align with national best practice and standards.
Along with these exciting features, we are still committed to constantly refreshing the platform with free, bilingual, dynamic content and resources designed in partnership with young people with lived experience. We all have a part to play in ending LGBTQ youth homelessness and we are proud to have a role in creating a low-to-no-barrier, accessible, and intersectional learning community. We would like to thank everyone who has been on this journey with us and are excited to welcome those making a commitment to equity today. We hope these new features benefit you in moving towards transformation. Stay in touch to see all the amazing work being done here at True Colors United!
