STUA ProD Session - Gender Diversity Workshop

Diverse gender expression and exploration are valuable elements of our ever-evolving communities. It is important for communities (academic and beyond) to understand, embrace, and adapt to these cultural shifts and to keep up with human rights progress. Kingsley Strudwick will introduce a framework for understanding gender beyond the binary, offer examples of gender-affirming practices, and explore strategies for applying these learnings on a personal, relational, and systemic level.

Workshop Goals:

  • Offer frameworks for understanding ‘dignified trans care’ and gender diversity
  • Introduce new language/terminology
  • Explore best practices for engaging with peers, colleagues, & community
  • Learn about and practice pronouns and gender-neutral language
  • Navigate through context-specific scenarios
  • Analyze barriers using a gender-affirming lens
