A Western Canada Partnership
SOGI 1 2 3 launched in Alberta in 2017/18.
Thank you to The Stollery Charitable Foundation for making this Western Canada partnership possible. We would also like to express our gratitude for the guidance and support from education and community leaders that informed the introduction of SOGI 1 2 3 to Alberta.
ARC Foundation is now pleased to have entered into a collaboration agreement with the Alberta Teachers’ Association to formalize their support for SOGI 1 2 3. We would also like to thank the Edmonton Community Foundation and Human Rights Education and Multiculturalism Fund for funding further provincial education leadership activities and inclusive curriculum resource development.
Tools and resources for Alberta educators will grow and evolve as participation and support increases. We are actively looking to partner with other like-minded individuals and organizations who support our vision of expanding the tools, resources, and professional development opportunities available to educators in Alberta.
We are closing the gap between ideas and action.
SOGI 1 2 3 is designed to address the gap between educators reporting high-level support of SOGI-inclusive education and lower level participation in SOGI-inclusive activities due to feeling that they do not have the appropriate skills, training, or support.
SOGI Educator Network
The Alberta SOGI Educator Network brings together Alberta educators interested in SOGI-inclusive education.
It enables these educators to meet, share resources, co-design programs, and collectively overcome obstacles within and across their school districts. The SOGI Educator Network formally launched in British Columbia in 2016/2017 and membership is now province-wide. This year, SOGI 1 2 3 is working with Edmonton Public Schools, Sturgeon School Division, and St. Albert Public School District to bring the SOGI Educator Network to Alberta as an innovative pilot project.
