Creating LGBTQ Inclusive Schools for School Social Workers

Register for the workshop here!

For LGBTQ students, faculty and staff the school environment poses numerous threats and obstacles. Hurtful language, physical and emotional harassment and the threat of physical violence are a reality for many LGBTQ people. Even in more supportive environments, heterosexist and cissexist remarks and assumptions abound. While progress is slowly being made to create more welcoming and inclusive schools and campuses, there is still much to be done. This dynamic, interactive workshop includes information on inclusive language, the current climate in our schools and colleges, coming out, understanding sexual and gender identity, creating inclusive classrooms and responding respectfully and appropriately to questions and concerns from students, co-workers and parents. We will also discuss taking proactive steps to creating inclusive spaces where all students, teachers and staff are empowered to reach their full potential.
