It also shares a variety of useful resources.
On behalf of the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Elementary and Secondary Education’s Office of Safe and Supportive Schools, the National Center on Safe Supportive Learning Environments (NCSSLE) invites you to join the next Lessons from the Field webinar, Preventing and Intervening in Identity-Based Bullying.

Please join the U.S. Department of Education and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention in a timely webinar focusing in on identity-based bullying. Presenters first discussed the causes of bullying behavior and the impacts of bullying. Then they pivoted to speak about identity-based bullying, defining what it is, the impacts of identity-based bullying, and strategies to address identity-based bullying. A practitioner and expert panel subsequently discussed the innovative approaches for improving school climate to lessen identity-based bullying. At the end of the presentation and panel discussion, speakers responded to questions from the audience.
