Training Overview

It’s Pride Month! How do you support students? Stop microaggressions and make school a safe space.

With Pride Month underway and summer break on the horizon, June is an ideal time to make lasting changes to support LGBTQ+ students before the new school year begins. Microaggressions from thoughtless questions to incorrect pronoun use continuously eat away at their mental health.

You can implement policies and practices and provide training now to actively support this significant subset of the school population throughout the 2022-23 school year. Incorrect assumptions and careless comments harm students who express their sexual and gender identities and those who do not.
