Foundations of Gender & Sexuality (Allyship 101)
1.5 — 2.5 Hour Webinar OR PRESENTATION
FOUNDATIONS explores how we are socialized with regards to sexual orientation, gender identity, and expression and provides fundamental awareness of basic allyship practices for access, equity, and inclusion of the LGBTQ community.
This workshop aims to increase the awareness of student, faculty, staff, and community members of topics and issues pertaining to working with sexual and gender minorities at Yale University and within the City of New Haven, Connecticut. Through this training, people can become better equipped to support individuals of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and expressions within our current socio-historic-political contexts. Participants have the opportunity to examine their own identities, socialization, and beliefs; raise awareness of others in our community, begin the process of critiquing paradigms and systems that are harmful to LGBTQ people, and pledge a commitment to enhancing allyship practices through an intersectional lens. This workshop is scheduled periodically by our office and by special request by on and off campus partners at our standard training fee rate. Training fees support cover our continued education and advocacy work.
