LGBTQIAP+ Advocacy Training

The Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Multicultural Education (ODIME) is offering an LGBTQIAP+ Advocacy 101 Training and an LGBTQIAP+ 201 Training intended for students, faculty, and staff. The 101 training will cover topics such as gender identity, using pronouns, and the state of LGBTQIAP+ community in the world and at WPI. The 201 Training will cover topics such as LGBTQIAP+ history, queer identity in other cultures, and queer theory. Finally, attendees of both trainings will learn about how to turn their knowledge into action and will create an advocacy plan. They will also leave with several other resources to continue learning more.  

The 101 Training will be offered on Thursday, April 4 at 10:30 AM ET – 12:00PM ET in the Rubin Campus Center Taylor Room. There will be two opportunities to participate in the 201 Training: Monday, April 8 at 1:00PM ET – 2:30 PM ET in the Rubin Campus Center Hagglund Room and on Wednesday, April 17 at 3:00PM ET – 4:30PM ET in Unity Hall 405. It is highly encouraged that attendees either attend the 101 training first or have a solid foundation of understanding of these topics before attending the 201 Training. Registration is recommended.
