The P.R.I.D.E. (Pursuing Respect, Inclusion, Diversity, and Equity) program aims to create a visible network of support for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, and two spirit (LGBTQ2S+) individuals and their allies by providing an avenue through which any member of the Vanderbilt community can show their support. The training is 3 hours and happens 2-3 times per semester.
By participating in the P.R.I.D.E. Training, participants show their support for people of all genders and sexualities and commit to developing allyship skills through the following actions:
- Engaging in ongoing education about gender, sexuality, and intersecting identities.
- Continuously working to recognize oppression, privilege, and the ways they impact marginalized communities.
- Providing referrals, support, or resources on and off campus as necessary.
- Fostering an equitable environment for people of all genders and sexualities, inclusive of their intersecting identities.
