When: Thursday, April 26, 2018 | 11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
Where: Neville Scarfe Building, Room 310
As part of Teacher Education For All (TEFA), all Faculty of Education staff and faculty are invited to participate in a professional learning opportunity related to inclusion for gender identity.
“Respecting Sexual and Gender Diversity in Our Teaching and Practices” will be facilitated by Steve Mulligan and Hélène Frohard-Dourlent, who have played an instrumental role in moving the Faculty forward in SOGI (sexual orientation & gender identity) inclusion.
These workshops are intended to provide staff and faculty with knowledge, language and practices to help ensure that all faculty, staff, students and visitors are treated not only respectfully but in accordance with new Human Rights legislation. We ask that department administrators be as flexible as possible to enable all staff to attend this session.
We look forward to supporting you as we learn and grow together to enable our Faculty to be as inclusive and welcoming as possible for everyone. Light refreshments will be served after the session.
The Teacher Education for All! project will build capacity for faculty, staff, and students in Teacher Education at UBC to create and provide an inclusive culture, work place, and learning environment with a particular focus on intersectional approaches to thinking about sexual and gender diversity and pedagogical approaches to recognize, and intervene to transform, the impacts of systemic discrimination.
The Teacher Education for All! project is funded by the UBC-ARC Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Fund. ARC Foundation is a private foundation established in 2009, based in Vancouver, BC. ARC supports projects that exhibit Awareness, Respect and Capacity in improving the status of those who are marginalized in society by sexual orientation, gender identity, ethnicity or financial status. Funding has also been provided by UBC’s Equity and Inclusion Office.
