Thank you for your thoughtful contributions and hard work during our PDI sessions.  This year's sessions were designed to meet school wide as well as divisional needs.  The IFSEL advisory training for US and focus on curriculum design and mapping in LS served to set a foundation for some of our four work in the fall.  The materials from the Gender Inclusion Training are linked below.
