LGBTQIAP+ Advocacy 101 Training flyer

The Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Multicultural Education (ODIME) is offering an LGBTQIAP+ Advocacy 101 Training intended for students, faculty, and staff. The training will cover topics such as gender identity, using pronouns, and the state of LGBTQIAP+ community in the world and at WPI. Finally, attendees 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.  

There will be two opportunities to participate in this training: on Monday, February 19 from 2:00PM to 3:30PM ET in Higgins Laboratory 154 and on Tuesday, February 27 from 10:00AM to 11:30AM ET in Unity Hall 405. A ‘201’ training will be offered in D-term, and it is highly encouraged that attendees either attend the ‘101’ training first or have a solid foundation of understanding of these topics. Please reach out to Lauren Feldman (she/they) at with questions or accommodations requests!

The Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Multicultural Education (ODIME) promotes and oversees all student facing diversity, equity, inclusion, and belonging (DEIB) learning experiences, programs, services, trainings, and initiatives for WPI.
