Event Description

Transforming Organizations: Gender and Sexuality Affirming Spaces

Carey Jean Sojka, PhD, Assistant Professor of Gender, Sexuality, and Women's Studies, Southern Oregon University

Are you interested in creating a more gender and sexuality affirming organization? Through this training, we will explore key concepts that will help to better support 2SLGBTIA+ inclusion through aspects such as language practices, physical and virtual spaces, and policies. Participants will leave with a checklist to get you thinking about what your organization may already be doing well, and how you can help further instill gender and sexuality equity practices into your organizational norms.

For accommodation requests, please contact us at Advanced notice of at least 10 days is appreciated.
