Lunch + Learn


OUTSaskatoon's Lunch + Learn series is a new initiative that will allow us to provide even more educational training and resources to those wanting to learn how to better understand, support, and accept gender and sexual diversity. Every year OUTSaskatoon educates 6,000-7,000 people across all sectors; education, healthcare, government, non-profit, corporate, and more. These presentations are typically requested by educators or employers. However, we have heard for many years now that individuals have been wanting to attend sessions held at OUTSaskatoon. Therefore, we have launched a quarterly Lunch + Learn series, featuring curated presentations that speak to specific areas of interest or specific gaps in knowledge that we are seeing in Saskatoon and surrounding area. While we love education, we also love food and therefore, lunch will be provided at every session.
