The Welcoming Project is an informative, interactive, fun, and brave space for faculty, staff, and students to become a certified ally to EWU’s LGBTQ+ communities. Welcoming Project allies help create a more accepting, welcoming, and inclusive environment on EWU’s campuses. “Graduates” of the Welcoming Project receive an ally sticker and/or button that indicates they are an affirming person with whom LGBTQ+ folks can connect. Our hope is to have a Welcoming Project ally visible in every department and office on campus.
The Pride Center offers ally trainings once per quarter. These quarterly trainings are open to any EWU student, staff, or faculty member.
The next Welcoming Project trainings open to all EWU community members will be:
Monday, April 10, 2017
12pm – 1:30pm
The Pride Center also offers additional trainings by request to student organizations, departments, and offices. Send us an e-mail with some dates and times that work best for your group, and we will do our best to accommodate.
