Building an Ally Community at Brandeis

The Intercultural Center and the Gender and Sexuality Center proudly present the Brandeis LGBTQA Allies Training!

The Brandeis Allies Training is a 90 minute program, open to students, staff, and faculty, in which participants are invited to learn about and discuss what it means to be an ally to LGBTQA individuals and others across sexual and gender spectrums, at Brandeis and beyond. During the training, we will focus on ways to support someone in their identity, interrupt sexual and gender prejudices, recognize the diversity within LGBTQA identities, and further educate and challenge ourselves to examine our own beliefs and actions.

The mission of the Brandeis Allies program is to:

  • educate and raise awareness of issues and concerns surrounding gender identities/expressions and sexual identities;

  • create a visible allied community of undergraduate students, graduate students, staff, and faculty;

  • provide resources and support for Brandeis LGBTQA students, staff, and faculty;

  • make Brandeis a safer place for all to evolve and prosper.

Allies Trainings will resume Fall 2015.

This program is free and open to the entire Brandeis Community.
