Promoting Safety, Inclusion and Well-Being for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Questioning, and Gender Expansive Students
Presenters: Dr. Vincent Pompei, Director, Youth Well-Being Project, and Chair, Time to THRIVE; Amanda Karhuse, NASSP Director of Advocacy
The LGBTQ community is making steady progress toward legal equality, yet the deck continues to be stacked against young people growing up LGBTQ in America and facing family rejection, bullying and daily concern for safety.
Presented by Dr. Vinnie Pompei and Amanda Karhuse, this interactive, impactful and timely webinar will particularly benefit those administrators who want to learn more about supporting transgender and gender non-conforming students, including questions about transitioning, bathrooms, locker rooms, overnight field trips, name and pronoun changes and more. Research has found that when LGBTQ students feel safe and supported, they are more likely to learn, attendance increases and graduation rates rise.
