Trans: A Gender Identity Inclusion Workshop

Trans: A term meant to represent the breadth and depth of gender diversity of those whose current gender identity is different than the gender they were assigned at birth.

Register for a Workshop!  

If you are interested in bringing this workshop to your department, please fill out our workshop request form.

Why YOU need to attend:

  • Do you know how to respond if a staff member you supervise initiates a gender confirmation plan to undergo transition in the workplace?
  • Are you aware that many students and other staff members use pronouns such as “they” and “ze”?
  • Gender identity is a protected category in state non-discrimination law and campus non-discrimination policy, are you are aware of what you need to know to be in compliance.
  • You've never been to a trans-focused workshop before - you may not know what you don't know.

Trans people have gained a new level of visibility in the past few years, but it has not been paired with the widespread education necessary to move from basic awareness to actual inclusion. This workshop will cover foundational concepts and critical information about gender identity and trans-related issues, which will allow you to better integrate trans-inclusive practices into your work practices and department.
