Navigating Allyship Workshop required for all AHS faculty and staff

In line with AHS’s commitment to equity and justice for gender and sexual minorities, we are inviting all of you to participate in the first opportunity to attend a required professional development workshop offered by the UIC Gender and Sexuality Center. The first available workshop, which focuses on allyship training to embrace gender and sexual differences, will be offered online on September 24 from 10 a.m.  to 12:30 p.m.

Since registration is on a first-come, first-served basis, we would encourage all of you to register for this workshop if it fits within your schedule. If you are teaching at that time, or if you attempt to register and find that all of the vacancies have been occupied by other registrants, we have been told there will be other opportunities. We will ask each unit to keep track of those faculty and staff who have completed the workshop, and we will continue to send invitations to those not completing the workshop, as additional workshops are offered.
