Sexual and Gender Diversity Education

Understanding strengthens our voice.

Our educational initiatives are designed to deepen understanding, broaden horizons, and build our community.

Duke P.R.I.D.E. Training

Pursuing Respect, Inclusion/Intersectionality, Diversity, and Equity

Duke P.R.I.D.E. Training is the Center for Sexual and Gender Diversity’s (CSGD) signature educational program aimed at increasing awareness of issues impacting those with marginalized sexual orientations, gender identities and gender expressions (SOGIE). All members of the Duke community, including students, staff, and faculty, may attend.

As a whole, Duke P.R.I.D.E. training addresses intersectionality and acknowledges multiple identities including race/ethnicity, nationality and religion throughout the training. The training is designed to equip individuals with helpful tools to assist them with responding to and dismantling cissexism and heterosexism at Duke and beyond.
