FOUNDATIONS explores how we are socialized with regards to
sexual orientation, gender identity, and expression and 
an introduction to basic allyship practices for inclusion.

This workshop aims to increase the awareness of student, faculty, staff, and community members on topics and issues pertaining to sexual and gender minorities at Cal Poly and in San Luis Obispo County.  Through this training, people can become better equipped to support individuals of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions within our current socio-historic-political contexts.  Participants have the opportunity to examine their own socialization and beliefs, raise awareness of others in our community,  begin the process of critiquing paradigms and systems that are harmful to LGBTQ+ people, and pledge a commitment to enhancing allyship practices for access, equity, and inclusion of sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression through an intersectional lens. This workshop is offered quarterly at Cal Poly or by special request by groups of 10+. 


This workshop is for those seeking foundational knowledge on understanding the needs and issues of transgender and gender non-conforming communities.  This course is adapted for context and contains information regarding the CA Gender Recognition Act.  This course will only be offered periodically beginning fall of 2020 and by request by groups 10+.
