Building Resiliency: Creating Safe and Affirming Environments for LGBTQ Students
This session will equip administrators with evidence-based strategies and best practices that ensure schools and classrooms are safe, affirming, and welcoming for all youth, including Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer or questioning (LGBTQ) students. LGBTQ students comprise 18.2% of Florida high school populations and face some of the highest rates of self-harm, harassment, substance abuse, homelessness, and victimization and yet our schools oftentimes can have the biggest positive impact on their experiences. In this session, you will learn the best practices used across Florida schools to improve school culture, navigate legal questions, and empower faculty and staff to support all students.
