This workshop is designed to help participants develop awareness and skills to best support and advocate with and for students, staff and faculty who identify with marginalized genders such as Trans, gender-expansive, non-binary and/or intersex identities. This event counts toward the Ally Development Certificate Program.

  • Offers participants a theoretical framework for understanding the multitude of genders and sexualities
  • Helps participants develop necessary skills to become better allies to the LGBTQ community
  • Invites participants to become part of an identifiable and university-wide network of allies in training.

In order to receive an Ally Training Certificate and sticker, you must complete the following:

Required Workshops

  • Gender and Sexualities 101
  • Moving from Actor to Ally

Plus one or more of the following
