Navigating Gendered Language with Confidence and Respect

Navigating Gendered Language with Confidence and Respect helps participants develop a better understanding of gender identity, sexual orientation, the importance of pronouns, and how to use them properly. During this workshop, attendees will have an opportunity to explore and acknowledge the abundance of gender identities and expressions within your community, including people who are gender non-conforming (GNC) and trans people.

This can be done as a 60-minute session though 90 minutes is recommended.
