Boundaries x Academia: How To Create Brave, Trans-Affirming Spaces in the Classroom [Webinar Recording] ($49)

“One of the most vital ways we sustain ourselves is by building communities of resistance, places where we know we are not alone.”

-bell hooks

It’s not uncommon for trans and gender non-binary students to be misgendered in the classroom.

It’s not uncommon for trans and gender non-binary students to be forced to explain their identity and its validity to their cis peers and cis professors.

It’s not uncommon for academic spaces to be designed around cis het men; excluding and erasing the existence and experiences of women, trans folks, and non-binary people.

Academic spaces are ripe for building communities of resistance and justice; but are failing to challenge the binaries that keep intensely marginalized students and their communities from whole liberation. Boundaries x Academia: How To Create Gender Inclusivity in the Classroom is about throwing that old rubric in the trash. This 75 minute online intensive will help you to learn how to leverage your privilege to help build spaces of holistic learning and resistance that both welcome and center gender equity in academia.

We’ll cover:

  • How gender binaries serve as a barrier to growth and development in the classroom.

  • What educators need to know about building brave spaces for trans and gender non-binary students and staff in the classroom.

  • Strategies for communicating with trans and gender non-binary communities through a lens of harm reduction and repair.

  • Unlearning ageist assumptions of identity development.

  • Challenging transphobia in academic spaces and contexts.

  • Partnering with trans and gender non binary student groups to develop trans affirming classrooms and staff meetings.
