Understanding Gender Diversity through Action Methods

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Professional guidelines and laws are evolving to protect freedom of gender expression, and with increased media coverage, more people are coming out as transgender at increasingly young ages. Unfortunately, attitudes among many family members, colleagues, and school personnel have not evolved at the same rate. This gap can contribute to the discrimination and alienation of transgender individuals, and puts them at a greater risk for depression and suicide. This brief lunchtime presentation will provide a concise overview of the issues and describe creative arts techniques that can be used to raise awareness and understanding of gender diversity in a variety of settings.
