The Ontario Educator’s Conference
Join 300 educators, administrators, and youth service workers from across the province on April 27th, 2018 at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education (OISE), (252 Bloor St W, Toronto, ON).
Conference participants will be given hands-on tools from educational professionals, lawyers, LGBTQ advocates, and academics to understand and recognize the issues faced by LGBTQ communities. The training will include a focus on supporting LGBTQ youth and educators; working with trans & gender-variant youth; and sharing best practices. Please note there will also be workshops in both French & English, from urban, rural & remote perspectives; and from Public & Catholic perspectives.
Our goal is to give educators, staff, and administration the tools to LGBTQ folk in their lives. Through our amazing line up of workshops and seminars we hope to change the landscape of inclusivity in education and create liberating spaces for students, staff and communities.
- Workshops, seminars and presentations, which specifically target Educators, Administrators and Staff to give them the practical tools to ensure a safer climate.
- Keynote Presentations.
- A community fair to connect participants to key resources.
The registration fee for this event is only $75. We encourage interested participants to seek funding from their teacher unions, or approach their administrator for money out of their school’s Safe School budget. This opportunity is an amazing chance at increasing one’s professional learning community, and witnessing what other schools across the province are doing to comply to Bill 13.
Participants must cover their own travel to the event.
