Personal Perspectives and Practices for Gender Equity, Inclusion, and Belonging

February 15, 2023

12:00 – 1:15 PM

Increasing numbers of students, faculty, and staff self-identify as transgender, gender non-binary, and/or gender diverse. Creating a sense of belonging for these members of our academic communities requires everyone to be intentional, explicit, and consistent.

This introductory presentation will provide participants with insight into the experiences of people who are gender diverse and suggest actions we can each take to make our campus communities more inclusive and affirming.

Please share this invite with interested colleagues.
