Intro to Gender Diversity: Workshop for BU Wheelock Faculty

Event Information

  • Starts: 10:00 am on Friday, October 29, 2021
  • Ends: 12:00 pm on Friday, October 29, 2021
In this workshop we will discuss social and cultural constructions around gender identity and expression. This workshop will provide a bedrock understanding of the difference between sex assigned at birth and gender identity, the distinction between sexual/romantic orientation and gender identity, and how gender diverse people are often marginalized and discriminated against in our culture. Participants will learn accurate terminology for talking about gender diverse people as well as strategies for supporting people with diverse gender identities and expressions in the workplace, in educational systems, and elsewhere. We will use case studies to explore ways in which gender diverse people experience stigma and brainstorm ways to combat both conscious and unconscious biases that may negatively affect gender diverse people. Please note this workshop is for BU Wheelock FACULTY ONLY. Please contact buwedi@bu.edu for the registration link.
