Gender Demystified: Creating Inclusive Spaces for 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, 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. Participants will learn key vocabulary, gain a better understanding of their own identities through a self-reflection exercise, and identify ways to strive for allyship with transgender and gender non-conforming individuals. Participants will leave the session better equipped to create environments that are inclusive of all genders, not just men and women. This program is free and open to all and will include plenty of opportunities for questions and dialogue.

Participation in this event qualifies for 2 credits toward the CFAES Diversity, Intercultural and Community Engagement (DICE) Certificate. For complete details visit
