Gender Identity and Diversity: Cultivating Inclusion Bookmark and Share

May 9

2 p.m. @ Atheneum Hall Room 105

Gender Identity, Expression and Diversity: Cultivating Inclusive Spaces The Gender Identity, Expression and Diversity workshop is designed to promote respect for people’s gender identity at CCU and the broader society and create a more welcoming space for people of all genders. Participants will be led through a process, whereby they will reflect on their own identities and then will explore how misunderstanding and mistreatment of individuals on the basis of gender identity contributes to a culture that invalidates and dehumanizes. This 90 minute (1.5 hours) session will help participants: • Learn why respecting gender identities matters • Build knowledge and basic cultural competence and increase their familiarity with gender-inclusive language • Learn and develop skills to help create a safe and inclusive environment for transgender, gender non-conforming and gender non-binary students, staff and faculty Participants will leave the session with knowledge and skills that can be implemented in their work and interactions at CCU. Participants who have completed any level of Safe Zone training are welcome to attend the session to deepen their skills and understanding.
