5:00 to 8:00 p.m.
The Arbutus Club – 2001 Nanton Street, Vancouver, BC
Educators require an awareness about the people they serve – students. Using BC and recent national research, Dr. Elizabeth Saewyc will share evidence of how schools play a pivotal role in fostering LGBTQ adolescent and youth well-being. Her research also shows how school attitudes, policies and programs can be advantageous for heterosexual youth too! The results may challenge and surprise you. Dr. Saewyc is eminently qualified to lead the presentation. She is Professor and Associate Director – UBC School of Nursing, Research Director – McCreary Centre Society, Executive Director – Stigma and Resilience Among Vulnerable Youth Centre, and principal researcher and writer of Being Safe, Being Me. After her presentation, she will facilitate a brief discussion on strategies and policies to support safe and connected schools for LGBTQ youth.
As with past practice the doors will open at 5:00 pm to allow members to network prior to dinner. We hope to see you on Thursday, February 25th, 2016
