LGBT Educators: Bringing Our Whole Selves to Our Profession
Date: 9:00am PDT June 7 Location: South Chapel, Graduate Campus
South Chapel, Graduate Campus
Public schools must ensure a socially and psychologically safe learning environment for all students. With the rise in bullying and hostile environments for LGBT people in schools, how is discrimination in schools a public health issue? What policies can support creating safe learning environments?
Join us for a generative discussion about the choices that confront queer educators and other school personnel. Local teachers and administrators and school counselors will share their experiences navigating the current policies and climate surrounding the decision to be out in schools.
Together, let’s move toward a future in education that celebrates who we are, learning from and lifting up the experiences of LGBT people serving in education, and create policies that are responsive to the needs of creating and maintaining safe schools.
