Outreach & Education

The Center exists to meet your needs, and to that end we offer a wide variety of programs and services. As a part of our mission of outreach and education, we offer workshops about the lives and concerns of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. These events can be designed to fit the needs of a particular audience and address issues specific to your group. We create these programs with members of our Speakers Bureau, a group of LGBT or allied members of the Penn community trained to relate their personal experiences to a wide range of topics. To request a specific workshop, please fill out a program request form.

Our staff also advocates on behalf of Penn's LGBT community for sensitive and inclusive University policies and practices. If you or someone you know feels they have been harassed or discriminated against on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identity, we are here to help. Staff members are available to provide confidential assistance regarding these matters.
