Women's Center & LGBTQ+ Programs

What's happening March 30-April 5

We're going virtual!!

So just because you can't come visit us in the HUB doesn't mean we're not still around. The staff of the Women's Center and LGBTQ+ Programs have been at work putting together lots of ways for us to connect, albeit socially distanced, for the rest of the semester. We hope you can join us for one or all of our various programs this next month! Each week we'll be sending out a calendar with info about the programs and opportunities to connect available to you that week. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Join us for the last STAR Ally Training of the semester, Friday, April 3 from 2-5pm . Register here: http://bit.ly/gcstarspring20

The S.T.A.R. Ally (Support, Teach, Affirm, Respect; previously known as Safe Space) program advances one of Georgia College's guiding principles of “instilling respect for human diversity and individuality,” by affirming people of all sexual and gender identities and lessening the prejudice that limits the university experience and well-being of LGBTQ+ identified students, faculty, staff, facility members and administrators.

The overarching goals of S.T.A.R. Ally training are to increase participants’ awareness and knowledge of LGBTQ+ people’s identities and experiences, as well as provide the skills to be an ally for the LGBTQ+ community at Georgia College and beyond.

Please note, S.T.A.R. Ally training cannot be made a mandatory training for any individual or group. If you are interested in having your organization or group trained, please contact the LGBTQ+ Programs Coordinator to discuss your needs.
