BU D&I Learning + Action workshop: Gender and Sexuality

9:00 am on Thursday, March 16, 2023

Zoom virtual event
What does each letter of the LGBTQIA+ acronym mean? How has our understanding about gender evolved from a male/female binary to a gender spectrum? And why does the sharing of gender pronouns matter? In this workshop, we will explore concepts of gender and sexuality, including the differences between assigned sex at birth, gender identity, gender expression, sexual orientation, and romantic orientation. We will also examine the power of language to include or exclude, and the importance of normalizing inclusive gender identity language in the workplace. Participants will also learn about existing BU resources to support BU employees who identify as LGBTQIA+. Registration is required; see the link below. Learning & Action workshops are limited to 40 participants.
