Trans 101/202 Professional Development Opportunity

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 10:00 AM - 12:00 PM

As part of the annual Trans Day of Remembrance The University Health Center is hosting a professional development opportunity for faculty and staff facilitated by the Director of America in Transition, André Pérez and Storyteller Dezjorn Gauthier.  America in Transition is a documentary series and community engagement campaign that explores community, family, and social issues for trans people of color across the United States. This professional development opportunity will explore the unique experiences and needs of trans people; identify structural and procedural barriers that face trans people; and discuss how JMU can better support our trans community.

This professional development opportunity is for everyone, regardless of knowledge level.  The first hour will be a split session so participants can go to the 101 training, or the 202 training; the second hour we will come together to assess, brainstorm, and strategize.
