"Supporting sexual diversity and gender diversity in schools - safe schools do better"
Join Roz Ward from Safe Schools Coalition Victoria to introduce gender diversity, sexual diversity and intersex and what it means for schools to be safe and inclusive. This session will provide a closer look at the research and evidence on the experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex young people in schools. After all the recent media attention, find out more about what Safe Schools Coalition Victoria actually offers schools, how we work, how Safe Schools fits within Victoria's Education State, and how as parents you can contribute to making schools more welcoming and affirming environments for all students.
