Staffing Update

Julianne at UTas Cradle Coast Campus Student Expo

The Board and team of WIO would like to thank Julianne Campbell who has been acting in the role of WIO worker in the Burnie office over the last few months.

‘I would like to thank the Board and team of Working It Out for the opportunity to cover the role of WIO worker on the North West for the past couple of months. I am very happy to have been able to contribute during this time. Even though my time with WIO has been brief it has great to meet some of the local queer folk and the passionate and committed workers on the North West coast. Here’s to WIO keeping up the good work towards a more respectful, safe and equal society especially for LGBTIQ Tasmanians.’

Julianne’s professionalism and knowledge have been very much appreciated and we wish her well in her future adventures.

The WIO Board would also like to advise that the recruitment process continues as we seek to fill positions in the staff team.  In the interim please contact the Hobart office for any information, training needs or direct support.

 

Regards

Susan Ditter

Executive Officer

 

 

 

Welcome to Working It Out Inc

 

Our mission is to support gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and intersex community members and their friends and family.  

We provide a free and confidential service to people negotiating their sexuality and or gender identity.

People who feel good about their sexuality and or gender identity are more likely to play an active role at school or in the community generally, more able to manage discrimination, more likely to be included and more likely to be confident and well.  

WIO is funded by the Tasmanian Department of Health and Human Services to provide direct support including free and confidential counselling, support groups, education programs and work place training.

It’s true….  

Same-sex attracted and gender diverse people experience less social stigmatization and personal hatred than was once the case and there is increased visibility of homosexuality in mainstream arenas.

But….

Despite these changes a person who is lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or intersex (LGBTI) cannot take their acceptance for granted – whether from their families, in the local shopping centre or at school.   

For this reason WIO works to support Tasmanians who are negotiating their gender, sexuality and/or intersex status.  We do this through a number of services: 

 

  • Individual Counselling
  • Support groups
  • Student education in schools
  • Training in workplaces
  • Information sessions in the wider community
  • Policy development with Government agencies
  • Partnership projects with mainstream services
  • Partnership projects with LGBTI organisations
  •  
    Visit our services page for more information.
