In the last decade, there has been dramatic growth in research on LGBTQ+ issues in schooling. There is more knowledge than ever about the school experiences of LGBTQ+ students, and about strategies that make a difference for creating safe and supportive schools and communities for LGBTQ+ youth. How can CBOs use research to better inform policies, programs, and practices that promote the wellbeing of LGBTQ+ youth? This workshop reviews key findings from this body of research, and identifies ways to use research to make the case for policy and practice change.
The Stories and Numbers workshop will include an interactive presentation about LGBTQ students and policies, as well as discussion-based activities to practice sharing stories and implementing new strategies for improving school climates for LGBTQ youth.
