Objective: To explore concepts related to gender, gender diversity and gender expression

The notion of gender identity has been diversified from a male-female binary to encompassing “countless variations.” This interactive workshop will encourage participants to consider these variations – first looking at the differences between sex, gender identity and gender expression; then exploring key concepts related to transgender and gender non-binary identities. This workshop features a discussion looking specifically at strategies for participants to become more gender inclusive.
