Workshops – Vancouver Campus

Foundational Positive Space Workshop:

Is your UBC working, learning or living environment welcoming to LGBT2SQIA+ 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.

Positive Space Learning Lab:

Arising from the recommendations of the Positive Space Campaign review in 2014, the Equity & Inclusion Office (EIO) has undertaken a curriculum development process to revise the existing Positive Space foundational workshop and develop a workshop to support learners with more complex learning needs – the Positive Space Learning Lab. The Positive Space Learning Lab builds upon the foundational understanding of sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression as it relates to UBC campus life, with an emphasis on building a respectful, inclusive and accountable campus community. This advanced workshop provides a facilitated learning experience to explore the complexities of systemic issues and barriers our university settings, as well as interpersonal relationships that impact sexual and gender diverse students, staff, and faculty. Using an experiential learning model, participants will work in small groups to apply promising practices and strategies to develop responses.
