THANK YOU FOR A SUCCESSFUL GSA CONFERENCE!!
We owe many thanks to everyone who played a role in making this an awesome day! From our workshop presenters to our volunteers, keynote speaker Rae Spoon, to the fabulous performances of Rouge Fatale & Friends, we couldn’t provide inspiration, ideas and connections for GSAs without you!
This page will have uploaded links and resources from the workshops, and will steadily transition into a resource list of ideas, activities and downloadable resources for GSAs. If you learned a ton but still need some references, we got you!
A conference for Gender/Sexuality Alliances (students and teacher-advisors) at the junior high & high school levels! A day of workshops, guest speakers , skill-builders and the chance to connect with each other!
We hope you’re ready for a fun filled day of new people, ideas, and connections. This will be the 8th year we see GSAs from across Nova Scotia gather together to share, learn, and take back amazing skills and energy to their schools and communities.
Pre-registration is now closed, same day registration will be available at the beginning of the conference from 9-10am!
