Workshops

My workshops and presentations provide a way to educate groups about supporting trans and gender variant people. These can be for libraries, colleges, businesses, or any other group or institution. Presentations are mainly informational, while workshops are more interactive.

  • Trans 101: This is for those who have little or no knowledge about trans and gender variant people. It can be adapted with specifics depending on your goals.

  • Gender inclusion for your workplace: This can include some Trans 101, but the main focus is on how employees can support trans and gender variant people in the workplace (this includes coworkers as well as customers, patrons, and/or students). Specifics will be tailored to the particular institution and attendees.

  • Gender inclusion in libraries: This addresses how libraries can be more supportive of trans and gender variant patrons and employees. Content can be generalized or geared towards a particular library.

  • Mix and match: Do you have a need not listed here? I will happily work with you to develop an appropriate session.

Consultations

Are your materials and practices welcoming to trans and gender variant people? If you haven't gone out of your way to make them so, probably not. This isn't unusual, but it does need to be fixed. Using my research on gender inclusion, as well as my personal experiences as a transgender person, I can work with you to make your systems more inclusive for people of all genders. Consultations can be anything from a quick review of a job posting to an extended conversation about an event or workplace situation.

  • Hiring: Review job postings, application forms, and interview practices to help trans and gender variant people feel more comfortable applying for jobs at your institution.

  • Language: Look over websites, policies, and other material to eliminate transnegative content.

  • Best practices: Discuss practices for events, spaces, and policies to create a trans-friendly environment.

  • Specific situations: Suggest how to respond to particular situations involving trans and gender variant people.

  • Anything else: Contact me with your situation and ask! I can't help with everything, but I will work with you on anything that falls within my realm of expertise.

If you are interested in a workshop, presentation, or consultation, contact me to discuss details and pricing.

I'm not the only one who does this work! See this list for more options.
