    Pronouns are tools for effective and efficient communication, and their intentional or unintentional misuse can cause confusion and harm. Using gender-affirming language such as pronouns and avoiding unnecessary use of highly gendered words is essential to creating spaces that are safe, inviting, and inclusive of people of all genders.

    Whether you're transgender, cisgender, or agender, you have a gender identity. Frequently confused with gender is sex, but these two terms refer to very different identities. And what about sexual orientation? How does that fit in with gender and sex? Understandably, the of these identities can be confusing and nuanced. This interactive 2-hour workshop will explore various aspects of gender and sexual identity and examine whether binary models of gender and sex accurately represent human diversity.

    Have you ever engaged in a conversation about an uncomfortable or sensitive topic and didn't know how to approach it? Conversations about sensitive topics can go awry and lead to friction, but this does not need to be the case. In this 90-minute webinar participants will be provided with strategies for engaging in conversations that may be uncomfortable or challenging. The latter part of this program provides participants with an opportunity to apply what they have learned in a breakout room activity.

Participants will learn common ways that bias shows up in daily life and identify strategies that can help reduce the impact of implicit biases.
