Learn strategies for accurately and safely collecting data on LGBTQIA2S+ youth and young adults.
Recent research shows that over one-third of young people in the foster care system identify as lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, questioning, intersex, asexual, two-spirit, or other alternate gender or sexual identity (LGBTQIA2S+) and experience higher levels of negative health outcomes. Presenters discuss strategies for accurately and safely collecting data on these children and young people to improve the care and services they receive.
Use this video with the CWVE 2022 Learning Experience Discussion Guide, which provides a description of the topic, reflection questions for individual learning, and conversation starters and team activities for child welfare staff and collaborative partners to explore together.
