On-Campus Events

GLBTQ Ally Training 101
Fri, March 23, Noon-4:00 PM
Appleby Hall 3 Ally Training Logo

Ally Training 101 provides a space to gain knowledge and skills about gender and sexual diversity, and to ask questions and engage in conversations we don't often have the chance to explore. Participants learn about GLBTQA communities, think critically about gender and sexuality, discuss language and privilege, reframe myths and stereotypes, and explore how we can be allies to each other across identities and experiences. Attendees leave the training with newfound awareness and concrete steps they can take to help make our campus and larger communities more welcoming and affirming for everyone. This session is free and open to the public. Free food (including vegan and gluten-free options), educational materials and Ally stickers/buttons will be provided! To register, please email with your name, email, and University or community affiliation.
