What prior attendees are saying:

I learned more about being culturally responsive as it relates to LGBTQIA+ communities including identifying some of my inadvertent biases, as well as some strategies discussed to deal with those in the work place who are wrong in their treatment of other colleagues who are a part of an LGBTQIA community. Why and how to include my pronouns – e.g. business cards, email signature, and Zoom name

I realized that I was not talking enough about LGBTQ2+ experiences in my courses. I reached out to my colleagues to get more information. I realized I have assumptions that I will try to always question.

The presenters did an excellent job moving what usually is an in person training to online. I have done so many trainings in my 20 years at UIC and I can honestly say that this one was the best training I have ever attended.
