If you do not intentionally, deliberately, and proactively include, you will unintentionally exclude.

Joe Gerstandt

Anyone can request a presentation or workshop (UNL faculty, staff, students, or individuals and organizations beyond the campus community). We will try to fill your request although there are times when we may have limited capacity. See below for some of our popular presentations and workshops, but other topics may be available upon request.

Please plan on two hours for the workshops. Presentations are usually 45 -60 minutes in length. Some presentations, depending on the topic and audience engagement, can take more or less time.


A great introduction for anyone wanting to know more about the LGBTQA+ community! Explores terminology, inclusive language, pronouns, campus climate, the Center, and the distinctions between sexual orientation, gender identity/expression.

Sign up to receive a Safe Space/Ally card.

Pronouns 101

Increase your knowledge and comfort regarding pronouns and transgender identities with using inclusive language.

Ally Development

Learn how to show an active commitment to diversity and inclusion, have mutual respect for people of all sexual orientations, gender identities and expressions, and be an ally to the LGBTQA+ community.

Inclusive & Safe Spaces

Terminology and information about safe spaces, along with an interactive activity about creating inclusive environments. This workshop is affiliated with the Safe Space Card.

Brave Space

A brave space is any place where individuals can engage in conversation around sensitive or challenging topics. Two related presentations are Mindfulness (activities related to active listening, conscious responding, and identities) and Brave Space which compares safe space and brave space, and provides an opportunity for dialogue and Q&A. Individuals completing one of the workshops can obtain a Brave Space card and/or button.

Social Justice Supporter

The Social Justice Supporter workshop clarifies the distinctions between diversity, inclusion, equity and social justice. Awareness of power and privilege and the strive for equity is emphasized in this workshop. A privilege and identity activity is also included. Individuals completing the workshop can obtain a Social Justice card and/or button.
