Sexual orientation course

UBC Okanagan is hosting a two-day sexual orientation and gender identity course on July 4.

Organized by UBCO’s School of Education’s Summer Institute, the two-day session—called Safe is Not Enough—is open to the public.

Participants will develop and present  educational approaches that recognize, intervene and transform the impacts of  discrimination towards sexual and gender minorities.

Co-facilitators Steve Mulligan, teacher education coordinator with the UBCV Faculty of Education, and Kristie Keyworth Janzen, a Spanish, French and social justice teacher for the Central Okanagan School District with the Central Okanagan School District, will provide ready-to-use resources, hands-on activities and group discussion in a supportive atmosphere. 

“The goal of the course is to provide participants with the tools, resources and confidence to create environments where students feel safe, included and empowered,” said Mulligan.

“Educational leaders across BC and Canada are recognizing that SOGI-inclusive policies and practices benefit all people by creating a more positive and accepting school climate from kindergarten through to university.“

The participant fee is $150. Register online at Summer Institute.
