This workshop will discuss the terms “Subtle Hazing”, “Harassment Hazing”, and “Violent Hazing” to give attendees a better understanding of what to avoid and what to report if witness.  This session will also provide strategies to prevent another death from taking place and discuss consequences that an individual, chapter, region, fraternity, and university would face.

Facing Trans
Room: Salons EFG

As we become comfortable with the Lesbian and Gay plight in the workplace, we continue to overlook Bisexuals and silence Transgender populations. Trans folks are courageously coming forward and identifying as such more and more often. This workshop reviews language and quickly develops a strategic plan to provide a safe and supportive climate for all and to prepare participants to become better advocates for the trans community. Be a leader by identifying the needs, including invisible populations, advocate effectively for trans people, and empower all community members to take action.
