Introduction to LGBTQIA+ Identities and Trans Identities: Developing Inclusive Practices
This session counts toward the BUILD Certificate Program - find more information about BUILD here.
In this 2.5-hour workshop, participants will first learn about personal experiences of people who are LGBTQIA+, define different terms related to the LGBTQIA+ community, discuss identity, and and engage in an empathy building exercise. In the second portion of the workshop, participants will hear personal stories and become more familiar with trans identities. They will gain a stronger understanding of vocabulary related to identity and build an action plan for how to be more inclusive to people who are trans.
Note: the introduction to LGBTQIA+ identities portion of the workshop provides essential background. Therefore, it is required that it be completed before the Trans identities section. Participants who have completed the introduction to LGBTQIA+ identities portion of the workshop in the past are welcome to repeat it or may arrive at 10:15am.
