The stations range from beginner level, introducing pronouns and providing examples, to advanced level, which focuses on more complex concepts such as neo-pronouns and advocacy. The workshop is inclusive, targeting not only the LGBTQ+ community to promote self-advocacy, but also educating students on how to become better allies. Breakfast food and beverages provided!
