It's Possible: Creating Gender Inclusive Schools

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Becoming a gender inclusive school is a journey that ideally includes active involvement from parents/caregivers, educators, administrators, and students. In this workshop, participants will learn Gender Spectrum’s framework for Gender Inclusive Schools and hear from a panel of parents who advocated to help their childrens' schools become more gender inclusive. There will be time for Q&A and dialogue.
