This series of four workshops is designed for BING faculty and staff who want to learn the basics of sexual and gender diversity as well as explore issues that may impact LGBTQ student success. While concepts will build across the workshops, each has been designed to also stand on its own. You are encouraged to register for as many as you can. Space is limited. Register HERE.
Brought to you by the Division of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion, the LGBTQ Center, and the U-Diversity Educational Institute.

LGBTQ 101: Exploring Privilege

LGBTQ 101: Coming Out
Coming out is not a one-time event but a series of events throughout one's lifetime. It is also not a static event, but can be relative to the people or circumstances one finds oneself in. In this interactive workshop, participants will explore a range of consequences experienced by students during the coming out process. Participants will also discuss ways to be supportive of someone who comes out to them.

Trans: What you've always wanted to know but were afraid to ask.
Celebrities like Chaz Bono, Lavern Cox, and Caitlyn Jenner have made transgender a household word. Yet, most people know very little about what it actually means to be trans. In fact, the identities that fall under the trans umbrella can be as different as night and day. In this interactive workshop, participants will have the opportunity to explore trans and gender non-conforming myths and realities.
