Webinar Description
Presented by: Oprah Revish and Jesse Beal w/ LGBT Resource Center, MSU Student Affairs and Services 

Join the LBGT Resource Center as we discuss how to get involved with us, our new LGBTQA+ competency building curriculum (Quest), and things to consider as we all continue to learn more effective ways to intentionally engage with each other. Allyship is about doing and sometimes we don’t know where to start. The thing that matters is that you do start! From right where you are with what you can control. LGBTQA+ inclusion is work that belongs to all of us. Bring questions and let’s learn together!
