Ontario Educators Conference : Implementing the Accepting Schools Act 2016

On April 29th, the CCGSD ran its second annual Ontario Educators Conference: Implementing the Accepting Schools Act.  The day started with 3 amazing keynotes by Liz Sandals, Renu Mandhane, and Andrea Houston. The day then proceeded with 3 sets of incredible workshops covering topics such a two-spirit identities, trans history, de-sexualizing consent, and LGBTQ disability & accessibility. As the coordinator of this event, it was such a great experience to see communities from across the province come together with a common goal: creating safer and more inclusive spaces for LGBTQ youth. There is something very powerful about people sharing their unique experiences with each other and I am grateful that this conference was able to provide that.  Finally, I’d like to mention a special thank you to our staff and volunteers. This day could not have happened without you! Learn more and read the full schedule hereIMG_1525
