In support of Canada’s vision of safer and accepting schools for all, Egale offers a free Safer and Accepting Schools Program! The program aims to develop deeper understanding of the impacts of 2SLGBTQI discrimination on student success, while offering concrete strategies for creating safer schools for all students and staff. In addition, the program includes free comprehensive resources to support inclusive classroom teaching as well as opportunities to network and share resources.
About the Webinar
Introduction to Safer and Accepting Schools
This interactive webinar will introduce participants to identities captured by the 2SLGBTQI acronym and how they relate to four components of identity. Participants will consider impacts of harmful biases throughout the school’s structure and culture and gain awareness of the work needed to foster safer and more inclusive environments. They will also learn helpful strategies to begin implementing right away! Participants will leave the session motivated to continue this important work in their own school communities, and equipped with further learning resources to support their effort. This webinar is designed with educators, school administrators, staff, and parents/guardians in mind. Students are also welcome to register!
