Egale offers a variety of workshops to school boards, educators and students alike! We offer two fully funded streams for our sessions: Safer Schools and Draw the Line.
Safer school sessions range from understanding the LGBTQI2S acronym, gender fluidity, capacity building, consent, and more. Our Draw the Line workshops focus on transphobia, rape culture and intersectionality. Our facilitators integrate lecture style speeches, videos, activities, interactive games and discussion to ensure a well rounded and in depth understanding of the content. Egale hopes through our workshops to create a more inclusive, safer and educated community.
