Advocate Training

Advocate Training is an informative, interactive, fun, and brave space for faculty, staff, and students to become visible advocates for EWU’s LGBTQ+ communities. Advocate Training helps create a more accepting and inclusive environment on EWU's campuses. Participants who complete Advocate Training receive a placard for each level they complete that indicates they are an affirming person with whom LGBTQ+ folks can connect.

We now offer three different "levels" of our advocate training to provide progressively deeper and complex skill sets and knowledge to support and serve LGBTQ+ students. All trainings are now facilitated through Canvas and provide a blend of synchronous and asynchronous content.

Winter 2024 Workshops

Level 1: January 25th 10am-12pm

Level 2: February 15th 10am-12pm

Level 3: Level 3 will not be offered this quarter. We hope to see you in a Level 3 training later in the 2023-24 academic year!
