"Navigating Allyship" Educational Workshop


As the Gender and Sexuality Center (GSC) begins to commemorate its 25th anniversary, we are reflecting, reimagining, and evolving what an educational workshop for allies of LGBTQIA+ communities looks like. While understanding that terminology around identities is an important part of the work we have done in the past with Safe Zone, we are moving forward with a new workshop geared toward creating intentional space for in-depth, open dialogues about gender and sexuality. There are many intersecting identities and multiple layers of diversity within the LGBTQIA+ communities and attendees will have the opportunity to learn from speakers and one another while engaging in discussions on topics that affect the queer and trans communities today.

 

"Allyship is not an identity—it is a lifelong process of building relationships based on trust, consistency, and accountability with marginalized individuals and/or groups of people. Allyship is not self-defined—our work and our efforts must be recognized by the people we seek to ally ourselves with."
