GLBT Advocate Program’s Lunch & Learn Series Gears Up for Spring Semester
Fall 2017 saw the launch of the GLBT Advocate Program's Lunch & Learn Series. Hosted monthly, this series of workshops provided faculty and staff with opportunities to engage in conversation and further develop their skills around implementing intersectional social justice strategies in the classroom. This semester’s Lunch & Learn topics will explore ways to utilize privilege to dismantle oppressive systems and advocate for marginalized communities, strategies to foreground intersectionality into work with students and how to engage in service opportunities without evoking the “White savior complex.”
