Creating LGBTQ+ Inclusive Schools and Campuses

Creating LGBTQ Inclusive Schools and Campuses

TIME: 2-4 hours

While progress is slowly being made to create more welcoming and inclusive schools and campuses, there is still much to be done. For LGBTQ+ students, faculty, staff and parents the school environment can pose numerous threats and obstacles. This dynamic, interactive workshop includes information on inclusive language, the current climate in our schools and colleges, understanding sexual and gender identity, creating inclusive classrooms/spaces 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.
