CCMA invites you to continue our collective commitment to equity by taking a deeper dive into the issues of LGBTQIA equity. The session will begin with a presentation and discussion with Mimi Demissew, Executive Director at The Pride Center of Maryland. We will then break into small groups for a workshop to exchange ideas and practices that you can use to improve LGBTQIA equity on your campuses.
