We all have multiple identities that impact the way we view the world and the way we are viewed by others. Our lived experiences differ based on what our identities are: our race, ethnicity, age, socioeconomic class, sex, religious/spiritual affiliation (or lack thereof), ability status, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression, veteran status, nationality, immigration status, etc. Some of our identities make it easier for us to be accepted and successful in our society, while other identities make it more difficult. This two-hour workshop is open to NC State undergraduates, graduate students, staff, faculty and alumni as well as interested members of the local community. The workshop will help participants critically examine the impact of their identities on their experiences, recognize the barriers they may (or may not) face depending on their identities, identify common behaviors that can perpetuate barriers for others, and explore ways to use their access and opportunity to create space for others.

Transcending and Connecting is a weekly counseling group held at the NC State Counseling Center. The purpose is to create a shared space for students on the trans spectrum and students questioning their gender to connect, explore, and learn with other students of trans experience. It is a space for the group members to give and receive support. The focus is on connecting with others, exploring identities, and navigating life in a safe space.
Students interested in joining the group should contact Jenny Glassmire-Policari (firstname.lastname@example.org) in the Counseling Center to schedule a brief screening appointment prior to joining the group.
QPOC (Queer People of Color) provides a safe space for African American, Hispanic/Latino, Asian American, Native American, multi-racial, and communities of color who identify as GLBT. QPOC provides a space for students to share their experiences, discuss how their racial/ethnic and GLBT identities influence each other, and connect with other students who are navigating multiple communities and what that can mean in terms of feeling welcome, accepted, and included. QPOC meets twice a month on Wednesdays at 6 p.m.

Campuses across the country feel the intensifying call to stand in unison and invest effort and energy to ensure that leaders, staff, and faculty are committed to and demonstrating a mutual goal to create an inclusive campus environment. Many recognize the potential rewards of increased student persistence and graduation and increased staff/faculty retention.
Now is the time to reignite and reinvigorate intentional, comprehensive training programs focused on issues of diversity, equity, inclusion and social justice.
There is a renewed and increasing call for immediate, systemic change at all levels and for all students, faculty and staff – 2017 is the year for your campus leaders to implement meaningful professional development programs and systems of accountability to ensure that everyone deepens their capacity to serve the increasingly diverse populations within your institution.
You can identify the skills and competencies you want administrators, staff and faculty to exhibit to proactively create an inclusive campus environment that enhances the success of everyone within your campus community. It can feel like a monumental task, but we have the training to guide you forward!
Our expert presenter – Dr. Kathy Obear, President for the Alliance for Change Consulting and Coaching and Co-Founder of The Social Justice Training Institute, will provide you with training resources, tools and a framework you can implement to analyze where your institution is, where you need to be and how you can deepen the cultural competencies of your leaders, faculty and staff…all with the ultimate goal of fostering academic success, belonging, and personal safety for ALL students!
