Workshops for Staff and Administrators

Jump Start: (single-session, 2 hour workshop)

In this single-session workshop staff and administrators build a base understanding of the key concepts at the heart of LGBTQIA+ inclusivity. We will practice negotiation strategies for creating safe spaces, learn ways of identifying the sensitivities of those around us, recognizing moments of conflict and possibility, and defusing verbal and non-verbal interpersonal tensions in an academic setting. We believe education is not confined to the classroom and every interaction is an opportunity to support student growth. This Jump Start workshop is designed to provide staff and administrators with the necessary tools to serve as effective resources for students and contribute to the creation of safe, productive learning communities.
