Do you want to ensure that your birth & parenting business is inclusive to all families and you are not sure how? Doulas, medical practitioners, and counselors often want all their clients to feel safe and included, but are worried about saying the wrong thing or feel uncomfortable taking a clear position on social justice issues.
The Diverse Families Certification program can help with that. It was designed to support service providers who want to learn how to be an effective ally and create communities that are welcome to everyone. By the end of this course, you will:
- Feel confident discussing race, class, sexual orientation, gender, ability, body size, and family structure.
- Understand the biggest issues marginalized communities face related to birth and parenting.
- Learn how to embed a cultural humility model into your business.
- Get clear on how to create marketing materials that speak to your target market while being inclusive.
