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!
