The Office of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Intersex Life will offer its Pursuing Respect, Inclusion, Diversity and Equity training program on Thursday, June 11, via Zoom. The program, which is three hours, will be split into two 90-minutes halves: 10 to 11:30 a.m. and 12:30 to 2 p.m. Participants should expect to attend the full three-hour program.
The P.R.I.D.E. training program intends to create a visible network of support for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex individuals and their allies. P.R.I.D.E. provides an avenue through which any member of the Vanderbilt community can show support for people of all genders and sexualities, learn about the resources and support available, work to recognize oppression and privileges and the ways they impact marginalized communities, and engage in ongoing education about gender, sexuality and intersecting identities.
The training program is open to all Vanderbilt staff, students, faculty and postdoctoral scholars. Contact Assistant Director of the Office of LGBTQI Life Roberta Nelson (they/them) with any questions.
