    Today’s workforce is similar to a pot of stew - the blending of different food, seasonings, textures, flavors, and colors creates a wonderful outcome when combined. The workforce is made up of differences in various dimensions of diversity. The challenge is to understand and appreciate these differences. We must learn to work in harmony with people who may be different than us. Continuing with our Diversity in the Workplace series, participants will explore the general dynamics of diversity and inclusion with a specific focus on how to support LGBTQ+ individuals.

    QPR stands for Question, Persuade, and Refer — the 3 simple steps anyone can learn to help save a life from suicide.

    Just as people trained in CPR and the Heimlich Maneuver help save thousands of lives each year, people trained in QPR learn how to recognize the warning signs of a suicide crisis and how to question, persuade, and refer someone to help. Each year thousands of Americans, like you, are saying "Yes" to saving the life of a friend, colleague, sibling, or neighbor.

    What will you learn?

    • How to Question, Persuade and Refer someone who may be suicidal
    • How to get help for yourself or learn more about preventing suicide
    • The common causes of suicidal behavior
    • The warning signs of suicide
    • How to get help for someone in crisis

    This training is for those who work with IU Bloomington campus. The following counties are also invited to attend: Allen, Boone, Carroll, Clinton, Fayette, Lawrence, Martin, Monroe, Morgan, Owen, Scott, Tippecanoe, and/or White County and interacts with adults in the general population.
