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, intersex, asexual and other gender and sexually diverse (LGBTQIA+) individuals and their allies by providing an avenue through which any member of the Vanderbilt community can show their support. In addition to requesting a P.R.I.D.E. training for your student organization, classroom, or office, drop-in trainings open to anyone are offered throughout the term. In-person training will be held Thursday, September 29th from 12:00-3:00pm and online on Wednesday, November 30th from 5:30-8:30pm. All attendees who complete the training will be given a placard to display.
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.
