Create & Celebrate Cultures of Inclusion, Access & Thriving in Higher Education
Many institutions do not offer comprehensive programming, education, tools and insights with regards to LGBTQIA+ identities. Additionally, many institutions do not count their LGBTQIA+ populations at point of entry into the institution to analyze/collect data that might better inform their practice and support for LGBTQIA+ populations.
Hear from our expert presenters on specific strategies and statistical insights that will emphasize the various levels of responsibility higher education administrators should hold when seeking to support minoritized populations across various intersections and to create cultures of inclusion, access and thriving within a higher education context.
You’ll be better able to address increased concerns centering on mental health and safety among LGBTQIA+ populations; Intersectional challenges and concerns especially prevalent for BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, People of Color) LGBTQIA+ populations; and barriers to physical campus infrastructures that impact all, but especially Trans and Non-binary populations. Create inclusive cultures and a sense of belonging for LGBTQIA+ communities inclusive of students, staff and faculty.
As a result of this webinar, you will be able to:
- Count LGBTQIA+ identities upon entry (admissions & enrollment).
- Create institutional policies inclusive of gender identity, sexual orientation, names and pronouns – create a culture where chosen names and pronouns are used.
- Invest in LGBTQIA+ spaces and resources that have/offer direct support to LGBTQIA+ populations, inclusive of students, staff and faculty – create access to spaces that affirm sexual orientation and gender identity.
- Create processes and spaces that are affirming of Trans and GNC (gender non-conforming) populations – offer Trans-inclusive support, resources and health/medical care.
- Offer educational programming and incentives that reach across academic and non-academic spaces at the institution that center LGBTQIA+ identities – be intentionally intersectional in all initiatives, programming and policies, especially when centering racially minoritized populations
- Create processes and policies that allow for name changes and updates to gender markers.
