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 semesterly at Yale University and by special request (minimum 20 participants required).  Special requests will be dependent on office staffing and capacity. 

The office is currently revising this training course.  Please check back for future scheduled workshops.
