Trans: Gender Identity Inclusion Workshop for the Library

In this time of change in American society, understanding diversity and inclusion is more important than ever! 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 the library.

  • 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 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!

This event is created by the Gender Equity Resource Center, co-sponsored by LAUC-B Committee on Diversity and Staff Development Committee. 

The Library attempts to offer programs in accessible, barrier-free settings. If you think you may require disability-related accommodations, please contact the event sponsor -- ideally at least two weeks prior to the event. The event sponsor is Naomi Shiraishi, (510)664-7201, nshiraishi@berkeley.edu.
