“As a board member of Family Equality, part of an LGBTQ+ headed household, and the president of a surrogacy agency, I was unsure what I would gain from the Open Door training. I found answers to questions I didn’t know I had! This really is the foundation for a truly inclusive and welcoming environment.”

“As a reproductive endocrinologist who specializes in LGBTQ family-building, I consider myself and my practice on the cutting edge when it comes to serving the community. Open Door Professional Training Program showed me that I still have areas in which I can expand my knowledge to best understand, support, and welcome the LGBTQ community. I found it to be highly engaging and thoroughly relevant to my day-to-day work. It should be utilized by anyone doing work to support LGBTQ prospective parents!”

“I am the Founder and Medical Director of RMA of Connecticut, and I'm proud to serve the LGBTQ+ community every day. But even with all of our successes as a welcoming practice, I still came away from the Open Door online training knowing more about how I can serve these prospective parents. Open Door is a stellar platform that will enhance any practice’s commitment to supporting the LGBTQ+ community.”
