Understanding Sexual Orientation/Gender Identity Policy

SOGI is an acronym for Sexual Orientation/Gender Identity.

  • It is not a dedicated curriculum or a list of specific identities.
  • It is an inclusive term relevant to all individuals, and includes identities such as heterosexual, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, two-spirit, cisgender, and more.

The 49ͼ wants all of our schools and workplaces to be welcoming and safe spaces for every student and staff member – this includes all sexual orientations and gender identities.
