Allyhood Development Training


The Spectrum Center’s LGBTQ+ Allyhood Development Training Program, started in 2005, seeks to support an individual or organization’s process of development as it relates to LGBTQ+ inclusivity and advocacy. Allyhood Development Training (ADT) uses a social justice framework to illustrate the lived experiences of LGBTQ+ identified people to workshop participants. 

Topics include:

  • social identities
  • LGBTQ+ terminology 
  • active bystander intervention strategies 
  • practice utilizing the day’s knowledge and skills in real-life scenarios

Through active engagement in the training, participants will grow in their personal awareness, knowledge, skills, and actions as they relate to their engagement in doing ally work. The purpose of having the Allyhood Development Training is to promote a campus community in which everyone is treated with respect and dignity.

Length: 6 hours (including a 1-hour lunch break)
