Positive Space

Positive Space information sessions were introduced at the university in 1999. Positive Space stickers in work, living, or study areas signal that all are welcome. To be welcoming includes not making assumptions about anyone’s gender or sexual orientation, being aware of intersectionalities with other forms of oppression, and working to overcome both overt and subtle forms of discrimination and harassment.

Positive Space information session continue to be offered at Queen’s.
