LGBTQ+ Allyship in the Classroom Workshop for staff/faculty

August 16, 2021 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm

A student-led group of undergrads, grad students, faculty, and staff within the Physics & Astronomy department has put together an LGBTQ+ Allyship in the Classroom Workshop. This is for educators to learn how to make their classrooms more inclusive for LGBTQ+ students.

It is not associated with the university-wide SafeZone training — this is a short event, administered by students, and specifically geared toward teaching in physics, astronomy, and math.

(Some of you may have attended this event last spring — it is the same workshop and will have no new content. Of course, you’re welcome to come back if you want a refresher!)

The training will be offered virtually,

  • For undergraduate students, graduate students, and postdocs:
    • Thursday, August 12th from 3:30 – 5 pm
  • For staff and faculty:
    • Monday, August 16th from 3:30 – 5 pm

We will discuss how allyship can affect students’ learning, as well as specific actions that educators can take to create welcoming environments for LGBTQ+ students.
