Is your UBC working, learning or living environment welcoming and inclusive to sexual and gender diverse students, staff and faculty? Would you like to learn more how to improve and positively impact the climate for sexual and gender diversity?

The Positive Space foundational workshop covers current language, issues, resources, and best practices in an interactive and experiential learning environment. Participants will gain relevant knowledge and skills to use in their academic, work and campus life.

Once you have attended the foundational workshop you will have the option to volunteer as Resource Person for the Positive Space campaign. Students, staff and faculty who are interested in attending the workshop are welcome. A Positive Space sticker will be provided to all participants to display in their work, learning or living space. Display of the sticker indicates you have a working knowledge of sexual orientation and gender identity terminology, policies and practices that support sexual and gender diverse students and employees, as well as issues in the campus environment.
