Improving LGBTQ+ Inclusivity on Campus

Creating an inclusive environment on campus for students, staff, faculty, and administrators benefits everyone. All campuses have LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and additional identities) people, but they may not be visible or feel welcome. LGBTQ+ people often experience identity-based microaggressions that negatively affect their mental health and productivity at school or work. Many of us want to be inclusive, but do not feel like we have the knowledge or tools to do so. This training will provide education on LGBTQ+ identities and experiences, explain why inclusivity matters, and identify steps that you can take to ensure that your campus is inclusive for everyone who learns and works at your school.

Proposed Session Objectives:

1) Describe the impact of impact of microaggressions on LGBTQ+ people’s mental health and productivity.

2) Identify why pronouns matter, tips for pronoun use, and how to recover from mistakes.

3) Summarize action steps for creating an inclusive campus for LGBTQ+ people.

 A fee of $75.00 per participant will be billed to each institution.

Participants will receive an email with a link to complete their registration on Zoom for this virtual event two weeks prior to the workshop.
