LGBTQ Educators Resource Group

iChange Collaborative - We offer inclusivity consulting and training workshops to businesses, schools, community organizations, and government agencies.

"I can’t be there for other people unless I’m there for myself. I can’t really work to push our movement without really investing in myself. By investing in yourself you’re also investing in your community." 

Dior Vargas, queer Latina mental health advocate and activist

Virtual Edition

Join us online!!

The 2019-20 LGBTQ Educators Group is for you if you are committed to strengthening the identities LGBTQ students and understand that to do that,  you have to strengthen your own LGBTQ identity.  Being a part of this group offers you the rare opportunity connect with educators who share your gender identity and/or sexual orientation and can relate to your life experience both inside and outside of school.

This virtual resource group will explore the kinds of institutional and interpersonal support we, as LGBTQ educators, need.  We will share our stories, discuss support initiatives already in place in our schools and in our other communities; the kinds of support we still need, and how to find that support.  We support each other in affirming and strengthening our own identities and share resources for our own self care. 

Meeting Dates

Six times during the school year, educators from a variety of settings and locations meet online to support each other’s development as gender and sexuality warriors.

Thank you so much for your passion and commitment to such important work. I was inspired to continue pushing myself to grow and dig deeper into these issues.
