RDT 101

The continuing evolution of our cultural understanding of gender and sexuality can sometimes make it difficult for non-2SLGBTQ+ people who want to be respectful to avoid using terms that are outdated and possibly offensive. So SPECTRUM is here to help! SPECTRUM’s Rainbow Diversity Training eLearning courses are meant to help allies and people looking to become allies form basic understandings of 2SLGBTQ+ terms, concepts, and experiences.

SPECTRUM offers three options for eLearning about 2SLGBTQ+ basics:

  • Rainbow Diversity Training 101: a course covering only basic terms and concepts
  • RDT 101 + 102 Bundle: our 101 and 102 courses, covering basic terms and concepts, privilege and intersectionality, and material putting those concepts into context
  • Complete RDT 101, 102, and 201 Bundle: all of the material covered by the 101 and 102 courses, as well as 2SLGBTQ+ history, anti-2SLGBTQ+ hate, and allyship.
