    MSSWA Region 2B Virtual Meeting

    Outfront MN Training "What does it mean to be LGBTQ+? How does someone’s sexual orientation and/or gender identity impact their life experiences and needs? This training will provide you with knowledge to work with LGBTQ+ students in a manner that is welcoming, inclusive, and affirming. We will start by familiarizing ourselves with LGBTQ+ identities and language, then tackle the current cultural and political landscape for LGBTQ+ people, and end with a discussion of best practices when working with LGBTQ+ students."
