Learning Sessions are curriculum developed and offered by DECO that aims to build awareness, knowledge, and skills around identity, power, and privilege to inform the collective equity and inclusion work of campus members (faculty, staff, students, and administration).
Gender 101, developed and facilitated by Joanna Villegas, is an introductory one to two-hour learning session on gender identity, expression, and attraction as it relates to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, intersex, and asexual (LGBTQIA) experiences and issues. These learning sessions are held twice per
semester and offer staff, faculty, and graduate students a space for open and critical conversation for the purpose of developing LGBTQIA allyship. The goal of the sessions is to promote gender equity at USF and provide tools for change that can be utilized in the personal and professional lives of participants.
