LGBTQ+ Awareness Training is a two-hour program which identifies faculty and staff who will provide empathy, acceptance, support and resources for gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, intersex, and questioning students. This awareness training is broken down to two parts.

PART I:
The LGBTQ+ Awareness training is intended to help all participants become more aware of the LGBTQ+ community, their experiences, history, and identities. Participants will be introduced to language and terminology, social and legal issues, and should leave with a heightened understanding and empathy for this important segment of our college community.

PART II:
Part II of the LGBTQ+ Awareness Training digs deeper into the content previously covered in Part I, such as terminology, culture, and how to ally with greater understanding and awareness. To participate in Part II, participants must have previously completed Part I.

Upon completion of Part II, participants receive an “I AM AN LGBTQ+ ALLY” placard to hang in their office space. This LGBTQ+ Ally symbol posted in an individual's workspace lets students and staff know they can go to that person for help, for advice, or to talk confidence with a person who will be supportive and accepting. This symbol also means that biased and offensive actions and comments will be addressed in an educational and informative manner.

When the LGBTQ+ Awareness Training is being offered, you can register as a participant through MySLCC. If your department or organization would like to schedule a training for a different time, you can request a training by emailing gssrc@Slcc.edu. Once requested, a LGBTQ+ Awareness Training trainer will contact you to set up a time.

LGBTQ+ Awareness Training is offered each semester. Staff and faculty will find LGBTQ+ Awareness Training opportunities through the MySLCC "Employee Training" portal. Students should email gssrc@Slcc.edu to register for upcoming opportunities.
