Trans Inclusion Training: Supporting Transgender Students, Staff, and Faculty

From media coverage of transgender celebrities to national discussions of rights for transgender people, transgender and gender non-binary identities and experiences are more visible than ever. Via recent guidance from the U.S. Department of Justice and the U.S. Department of Education, university staff, faculty, and students are now required to update many policies and practices to be trans-inclusive, often with only limited knowledge of the concepts of gender identity and sexuality. This training is designed to provide information about trans identities and help attendees develop skills to create inclusive and compliant spaces to support trans students, staff, and faculty.

Through an interactive, 90 minute workshop, attendees will:

  • Explore transgender identities and terminology
  • Discuss relevant laws and policies that protect transgender and gender non-conforming people in higher education settings
  • Develop and adapt necessary skills to support trans students, staff, and faculty

You do not have to attend Safe Zone training before attending this training.
