Equity in Education Program

Literacy and Our LGBTQ Students: Starting and Sustaining Schoolwide Transformation

Saturday, July 21, 11:00 AM–1:00 PM

Eliza Byard

Creating and fostering an equitable education for our LGBTQ students requires more than expanding a classroom library. Today's literacy educators must consider ways to be more inclusive with their curriculum, their methodology, and the structures that govern their shared spaces. How can we identify the hidden, unconscious biases and microaggressions that create unsafe and unsupportive environments? How do we engage in courageous conversations about these issues within our schools, districts, and communities? And what role does literacy play in long-term, systemic transformation? Eliza Byard, executive director of GLSEN, will deliver a short keynote and facilitate a dynamic discussion among a cross-sector of literacy leaders, inclusive educators, and activists.
