LGBTQ+ & Ally SIG Presents Pride Month Series

We hope you will join us for these upcoming workshops!

Transitioning Process 
Tuesday, June 21 at 10:00am, EST
Identifying within the transgender community is becoming more prominent each day. We will not only discuss the basic understanding of what identities there are, but additionally how the medical transition process gets started, what’s entailed with getting a name and gender legally changed, and how it all varies from person to person. Understanding this information will help anyone be a solid support system for students, colleagues, and friends.


Game On!! Trivia 

Thursday, June 30 at 12:00pm, EST Passcode: 896605 What would Pride Month Series be without a fun game of trivia! Bring your lunch, grab some coffee, be with friends, and enjoy the virtual party to wrap up Pride Month and our series.

Kudos to the LGBTQ+ & Ally SIG for hosting their first two Pride workshops - Student Panel & Inclusive Technology Practices! The leaders for the LGBTQ+ & Ally SIG are Shawn Ficadenti & Kathleen Martin

SAVE the Date for PCACAC's 58th Conference!

Mark your calendars for next year's conference  April 2-4, 2023. The conference site will be shared in the July Anchor Splash.
