Title: Gender Identity: Academic Advising in a Non-Binary World
Lead Presenter: Anna Boyer-Chadwick
Date: October 06, 2020    Time: 2:30 pm - 3:15 pm
Room: Live
Abstract: Academic Advisors play an integral role in the lives of students across the globe by creating an environment where students can feel safe. LGBTQnation reports one supportive adult could reduce the risk of an LGBTQ youth from attempting suicide by 40% (Smith, 2019). Providing support to our LGBTQ students lets them know that our offices are safe spaces where they are free to be who they are without concern for harm or reprisals. Using Strength-based Advising, we can help shift our advising style from failure prevention to success promotion. Participants will leave with definitions of concepts in the LGBTQ community, statistics relating to LGBTQ students, and a clear understanding of how to create a safe space for their students (Schreiner, 2013).
