Event Description

Learn LGBTQ+ definitions, statistics, and the effects of harassment

Title IX of the Educational Amendments prohibits sex discrimination in schools, but that doesn’t stop harassment, gender bias, and retaliation from occurring within the school system. Our most vulnerable population is young people who identify as LGBTQ+. And all too often educational institutions are failing to protect LGBTQ+ students due to a lack of confidence and understanding.

But knowledge is power. Join this informative webinar by Dr. Jennifer L. Martin for an in-depth discussion of the definitions of the LGBTQ+ acronym, statistics on and effects of LGBTQ+ harassment, Title IX requirements, and strategies to support LGBTQ+ students. She will explain how to be an ally to LGBTQ+ students, acquire the tools to advocate for this population, and understand the research and legal requirements to create more equitable policies and procedures within your school community.

After attending this presentation, you will be able to use correct vocabulary when discussing LGBTQ+ individuals and confidently lead complicated conversations with students, parents, peers, and leaders to promote a safe and supportive school environment for all.
