‘Creating a Queer-Inclusive AS&E’ workshop

October 12, 2021

In the first part of the two-part “Creating a Queer Inclusive AS&E” workshop for AS&E faculty and staff, participants will learn basic information about LGBTQ culture including current language and terms. This will allow participants to immediately begin the journey of creating more inclusive spaces in their work. In part two, participants will begin to gain an understanding of cissexism and heterosexism in higher education. They will then explore how these themes manifest in their work and grapple with strategies to shift these norms on an individual and school-wide level.

Staff sessions take place Tuesday, October 12, and Tuesday, October 26, from 12:30 to 2 p.m. in Feldman Ballroom, Douglass Commons. Register here for both staff sessions.

Faculty sessions take place virtually Friday, November 5, and Friday, November 19, from 9 to 10:30 a.m. EDT. Register here for both faculty sessions.
