Join us for the training to pilot the LGBTI Inclusion Index: a UNDP-led initiative

Join us for the training to pilot the LGBTI Inclusion Index: a UNDP-led initiative developed in partnership with LGBTI+ community organizations, multilateral organizations, governments, academia, and the private sector. The training will prepare participants to create a pilot version of the Index.

The LGBTI Inclusion Index aspires to measure the inclusion of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and intersex people across five strategic areas: security and violence, health, education, civic and political participation, and economic empowerment. In doing so, the Index will rely on 51 proposed indicators, which are compatible with the target indicators of the Sustainable Development Goals.

The training consists of two parts: (1) five self-paced, pre-recorded training modules (2.5 hours total), and (2) one live session adjusted to different time zones. Participants in the live session are expected to watch the module videos first, which can be accessed through the following links:

  • Module One: Introduction to the LGBTI Inclusion Index
