Join the Student Leaders of Inver Hills Community College's LGBT+ Club as they make this unique leadership opportunity available for faculty, staff, and students. The session will have two parts, but will be hosted at the same Zoom link.
"Transgender-Inclusive Concepts and Practices for College Leaders" (1 hour)
Visibility of the transgender rights movement and transgender individuals has increased significantly in recent years. Contrary to the positive outcomes of mainstream visibility, social and health indicators for transgender and gender nonconforming individuals have declined. How does this show up in campus environments and student experiences? In this session, college community members will learn about the current social context; reflect on their own gender identity, gender expression, and biological sex; as well as learn about model practices to affirm and support transgender, gender nonconforming, and non-binary community members. Participants will receive educational materials and resources to bring back to their respective campus units.
"Student Experiences Panel" (30 mins)
Students will share their experiences at Inver Hills through the lens of their transgender, non-binary, and gender nonconforming identities in a panel discussion moderated by Dr. Saby Labor.
