October is a busy month for history and awareness education. Given this, we created one Resource Guide to share the following information:
- National Bullying Prevention Month
- National Disability Employment Awareness Month
- Coming Out Day • Spirit Day
- LGBTQ+ History
Each section is filled with history and background information, what you should know, important dates, profiles of people, and ERG and Resource information.
To celebrate the histories and contributions of historically marginalized identities, take time to commemorate heritage months and identity acknowledgments throughout the year. These recognitions allow all community members to learn more about the traditions, people, scholarship, history, and current experiences of those who’ve overcome oppression to create opportunities for all.
It is important to note that the celebration of each legacy included in the calendar is not time-limited. This calendar is a helpful tool to ensure we’re inclusive of all community members.
