(Trans)Gender 101

Length: 2 hours, but can be customized

(Trans)Gender 101, which is trained in partnership with the University of Minnesota Transgender Commission , offers an opportunity to think critically about the gendered lives we all lead, and how creating accessible environments and inclusive understandings of gender can benefit everyone.

This training creates a space for participants to examine gender identity, gender expression, and our cultural notions of femininity and masculinity. Drawing on experiences and scholarship of transgender and genderqueer communities, combined with facilitated activities and small group discussion, attendees think about gender in new ways and leave with steps they can take to help make our campus and larger communities more welcoming and affirming for everyone.

Agenda Highlights:

Participants receive a variety of transgender inclusion and ally action steps handouts.
