TEFA Talks Two Spirit – A Teacher Education For All (TEFA) event
Wednesday, October 26, 2016
12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Room 310, Neville Scarfe
TEFA welcomes Harlan Pruden, UBC PhD student and First Nations Cree scholar and activist, as he shares his fascinating journey and perspective on being Two Spirit. Come and learn more about what it means to be Two Spirit and how we can take an intersectional approach to better understand and support students who are both Indigenous and sexual or gender minorities.
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.
