December specials are for everyone! Bring your favorite sips & snacks and join our virtual soirées from 7:30 - 8:30 PM Eastern.

Thurs, Dec. 9th: "Less Than Straightforward Diversity in the Animal Kingdom" explores the remarkable creatures that can disguise, alter, and defy all manners of the binary! REGISTER

Tues, Dec. 14th: "LGBTQ Representation in Holiday Movies(?)" explores the history and presentation of LGBTQ themes and characters in Hollywood and beyond! REGISTER

The most valuable part of this PD was the scenario exercise and the discussions it brought out with colleagues. We were all concerned about how to address potential kickback from parents but with these great resources, and the strategies to engage in conversation about LGBTQ inclusion, I feel more comfortable and clear about why we are doing this! - Joe
