Diversity Cubed! Teaching and Supporting Intersecting Identities

Wednesday, January 11, 2017
1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.
Scarfe 310

Join three panelists from diverse cultural backgrounds, sexual orientations and gender identities who support youth facing multiple forms of challenge as they learn, grow and define themselves. Come explore the complex puzzle of culture, faith, sexuality and family, as we discuss the considerations which must be present in order to teach, support and celebrate students’ various identities.

The Teacher Education for All! project will build capacity for faculty, staff, and students in Teacher Education at UBC to create and provide an inclusive culture, work place, and learning environment with a particular focus on intersectional approaches to thinking about sexual and gender diversity and pedagogical approaches to recognize, and intervene to transform, the impacts of systemic discrimination.

The Teacher Education for All! project is funded by the UBC-ARC Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Fund. ARC Foundation is a private foundation established in 2009, based in Vancouver, BC. ARC supports projects that exhibit Awareness, Respect and Capacity in improving the status of those who are marginalized in society by sexual orientation, gender identity, ethnicity or financial status. Funding has also been provided by UBC’s Equity and Inclusion Office.
