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.
The newly revamped training will consists of 4 one-hour-thirty minute foundational training sessions:
- Foundational Training 1: On Language and Identities
Focuses on language, terminology, and the complexity of identity in relation to other marginalized identities alongside marginalized sexual orientation, romantic orientations, gender identities, and gender expressions.

It is suggested, but not required, that individuals attend all four foundational sessions in order. You must attend all four to receive your P.R.I.D.E. certification placard to be displayed in your office.
In addition to the foundational training sessions we will provide on-going continuing education opportunities to go more in-depth about specialized topics related to the lives and experiences of LGBTQIA+ people. These sessions will be collaborative in nature and cover a wide variety of topics.
