What does SOGI mean?

SOGI stands for Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity. It is an inclusive term that encompasses all
individuals regardless of where they identify on the sexual orientation or gender identity spectrums, as every
person has a sexual orientation and every person has a gender identity. It includes lesbian, gay, bisexual,
transgender, queer, two-spirit, heterosexual, cisgender and more. SOGI is pronounced “so-gee.”

What is SOGI 1 2 3?

SOGI 1 2 3 shares proven SOGI-inclusive tools and resources in three key areas: SOGI 1 policies and
procedures, SOGI 2 inclusive environments, SOGI 3 curriculum resources. When all three pillars of SOGIinclusive
education are implemented, students have the opportunity to flourish.

Inclusive learning involves every part of the education system; SOGI 1 2 3 supports educators in building
inclusive classrooms as all students deserve to feel safe, included and empowered.
