SUPPORTING GENDER TRANSITIONS

Summary:

Gender transitions are unique, complex and deeply personal experiences that require specific frameworks of support from workplaces, families and other networks.

This workshop provides an open-minded, non-judgmental space for groups to learn about trans and gender diverse identities and how best to support individuals navigating a gender transition.

Throughout the workshop, attendees take part in a range of interactive exercises, hear firsthand from trans and gender diverse people about their experiences, and learn practical ways to support individuals as they transition.

Our patient and understanding facilitators encourage attendees to make the most of this unique opportunity by asking the burning questions they may not feel comfortable asking elsewhere.
