Gender Diversity in PK-12 Settings

January 02, 2019

Transgender students exist in every school district, county, city and town in the United States. Recent school surveys and other research tells us that 3% of students identify as a gender other than the one they were assigned at birth.

By the end of the workshop, attendees will be better prepared to:

  • Identify the basic components of gender diversity: identity vs expression vs sexual orientation.

  • Demonstrate inclusive language, support for gender diverse students and address gender-based bullying.

  • Engage parents & caregivers in discussion about their child’s gender diversity.

  • Analyze curriculum, lesson plans and classroom activities for inclusiveness.

  • Differentiate fact-based information sources from those driven by ideology.
