Intro to Gender Diversity: Workshop for BU Wheelock Staff, Faculty, and Doctoral Students

Event Information

  • Starts: 9:00 am on Tuesday, November 30, 2021
  • Ends: 11:00 am on Tuesday, November 30, 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 event is for BU Wheelock Staff, Faculty, and Doctoral students only.
