During this two-hour dinner dialogue, we will discuss issues and identities of gender and sexuality, particularly focused on the context of higher education. Graduate and professional students will have the opportunity to engage in meaningful conversations of LGBTQ identities and issues to increase their understanding and awareness. Students will also connect the knowledge to their roles as graduate and professional students in their field. Through this free dinner dialogue, graduate and professional students will learn about themselves and others, while at the same time learning about resources UIC offers.

Safe Zone provides a consultative and collaborative model of ally development through interactive workshops that provide specific expertise relevant to a particular unit, department, or organization. Each workshop increases awareness of holistic and inclusive policies and practices.

Please contact Theresa Christenson-Caballero at tchris1@uic.edu with any questions or if you require specific accommodations.

This program is co-sponsored by the Graduate College, Gender and Sexuality Center, and the Graduate Student Council.file-page1 (3)
