Positive Space Workshop: Aug. 15, 2018

Explore how you can positively impact the climate for sexual and gender diversity at UBC and make our learning, working, and living communities more inclusive to all.

Positive Space workshops cover current language, issues, resources, and best practices in an interactive and experiential learning environment. Participants will gain relevant knowledge and skills to use in their academic, work, and campus life so that they can help make UBC more welcoming to lesbian, gay, bisexual, two-spirit, trans and queer students, staff, faculty, alumni, and allies.
