Supporting Transgender & Non-Binary Students
Staff are invited to this training about the realities, experiences, and needs of transgender and non-binary students at Puget Sound – and how we as a campus community can particularly take steps to welcome, support, and include them in the full life of the college!
This interactive workshop will include space to explore the complex relationships between gender, sexuality, and identity; the various ways people may use pronouns; the needs and concerns that have emerged from the experiences of students (and faculty and staff!) over the last several years; the cultural and social considerations needed to create an hospitable and inclusive campus; and the importance of names, self-definition, and fluidity as we all live into who we are becoming.
- The gender binary (and thinking beyond it!)
- Pronoun and name usage
- “Ungendering” language
- On- and off-campus resources to support trans and non-binary students
Facilitator: This workshop is led by members of the Trans Awareness and Inclusion Committee (TAIC), chaired by Tolu Taiwo.
Audience: All staff
