Lessons Learned: Leveraging student voice to build district-wide LGBT cultural competencies through GSA and other inclusive clubs/practices; perspectives from north/south & rural/urban New Jersey.The presenters hail from vastly different experiences - from a conservative, rural district in the north, to a progressive, suburban district in the south. They will discuss their efforts to provide equity and cultural proficiency training by using student groups as the catalyst to discuss and act on linguistic and cultural competencies for diversity and acceptance. This workshop will focus on LGBT inclusivity and access and will draw from the real experiences of the presenters.
