Silver Rainbow Webinar: Older LGBTI people and accurate data collection

Why does accurate data collection for LGBTI older people matter and how can we take steps to create more inclusive data collection?

Join LHA’s Policy and Research Coordinator Amber Loomis for a discussion about the ABS 2020 Standard for Sex, Gender, Variations of Sex Characteristics and Sexual Orientation.

In this webinar we will explore what the 2020 ABS Standard is, why it is important, and how we can use the Standard to improve the health and wellbeing of LGBTI older people.
