LGBTIQA+ Mini Conference
October 6, 2018 @ 8:00 am - 2:00 pm
Session 1: Enhancing LGBTIQA+ – Positive School Climate – In this workshop, we will be exploring best practices for establishing/sustaining a high-functioning GSA club in your school and enhancing teacher-to-teacher and student-to-student peer leadership.
Session 2: Beyond the Rainbow: Supporting LGBTQ+ Students, Staff, and Exploring Intersectionality of Identity – In this session, participants will explore the various sexual orientations and gender identities that make up the LGBTQ+ community. Participants will also explore the concept and implications of social privilege and oppression. There will also be an emphasis on transgender, queer, intersex, and “plus” identities, as this content is often underrepresented, and thus, less understood. A large emphasis of the workshop will explore moving beyond simply one’s LGBTQ+ identity and also examining Kimberle Crenshaw’s concept of “intersectionality,” which incorporates how one’s various identities (race, gender, sexual orientation, etc.) together affect their experience.
Three hours of PD credit offered for this workshop.
