Student Life Events at St. George

Navigating U of T as a 2SLGBTQIA+ Student with a Disability

Sep 23, 2022 01:00 PM to 02:00 PM

Registration Deadline: Sep 23, 2022 02:00 PM

Accessibility Services is offering an informal space for students to find community, be yourself, and connect with other students registered with Accessibility Services! 
As a student with disability(ies) navigating U of T can sometimes be complex, layered, and overwhelming. This is a shared experience for many students on campus. In this Accessibility Dialogue, connect with other students who may have similar lived experiences. Through facilitated discussion, the goal of this dialogue is to allow space for 2SLGBTQIA+ students with disabilities to explore, and reflect on how the intersectionality & complexity of our identities shape the way we navigate the university. 
An Accessibility Services staff member will also be present to provide support. Students from U of T, UTSC, and UTM who self-identify as having a disability(ies) are welcomed!  
Format: Peer Connections will be offered virtually via MS Teams. Students are encouraged to take breaks at intervals of their own choosing during the session. 
Participation: Being on camera, using your mic, or participating in the chat are all optional. We welcome you to participate in whatever way works for you! You are welcome to ask questions or simply observe the session to learn from ongoing discussions. 
Materials: You are not required to bring any material to these sessions.
