Solidarity with LGBTQ communities

The GSCC Ally Training is designed to increase your capacity to build and sustain inclusive environments for LGBTQ people. The three-hour training builds on our natural ally behaviors towards learning how we can make durable, sustainable change in our communities by being proactive bystanders, recognizing a wide array of homophobia in our own lives, and reflecting on our power and privilege.

Beyond the Binary: Gender 101

This 90-minute training aims to educate the UW campus community about what gender is and how we express it in our daily lives. Participants will leave with a toolkit of how to make their classrooms, residence halls, and other community spaces more inclusive of a variety of gender identities and expressions.

Special Topics Trainings

We can tailor trainings on special topics for the learning outcomes of your group or class. Some common topical workshops include:

  • Treatment, Not Judgment: LGBTQ-affirming healthcare
  • Life at the Intersections: exploring the intersections of identity
  • Understanding Campus Climate for LGBTQ Students


GSCC professional staff are available to consult on your departmental policies and practices around institutional inclusion.
