- This event has passed.
You are invited to join GPSA Diversity and International Students Committee and the First Generation and Low Income Graduate Student Organization (FiGLI), in collaboration with the Graduate School Office of Inclusion and Student Engagement, the Graduate and Professional Student Diversity Council, and CIRTL at Cornell, for the third session of our Building Allyship Series – Coming Out for Allyship with the LGBTQ+ Community.
This session will feature a moderated panel discussion on how allies can support people who identify with the LGBTQ+ community in academia.
This session will provide us with an opportunity to understand the experiences of LGBTQ+ community members as they navigate academic spaces that often do not validate their identities and what they bring to the table. We will discuss what it means to be an ally to members of this community and how to build more inclusive cultures in our labs, classrooms, departments, and more.
