Understanding Gender Expression

Why is this important: Understanding why pronoun usage in the workplace, school and college setting raises a number of questions in the community. Why are pronouns changing at all? Should people be required to change the way they introduce themselves or include pronoun designations on their email signature line? How does gender identity and expression relate to sexual orientation? Why is this important to discuss in the workplace, school, and college settings? All of these questions (and more) will be answered in this program.


Description: This workshop has been designed to foster engagement for the purpose of connection, belonging, and safety for all groups of people. Whether you are new to these ideas or simply want to learn more, we have a place for you in our classes. This training is not about shame, blame, forced change, demanded acceptance, or agreement.
