Required allyship training for 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 a required professional development workshop offered by the UIC Gender and Sexuality Center.

This workshop, which focuses on Allyship training to embrace gender and sexual differences, will be offered in the first part of the semester with two online options: September 24 or October 20 from 10 12:30 p.m. More detail about this workshop will be provided through the UIC Gender and Sexuality Center in an all-campus announcement, which we will forward to you once it is received.

Since registration is on a first-come, first-served basis, we would encourage all of you to register for one of these workshops as soon as it is possible within your schedule. We will ask each unit to keep track of those faculty and staff who have completed the workshop, and we will continue to send invitation to those not completing the workshop, as additional workshops are offered throughout the semester.

If you have any question about this required training, please do not hesitate to reach out to us.
