    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, 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.

    All too often we witness subtle comments or behaviors rooted in bias that cause harm to others, many times directed toward people in vulnerable populations. Have you ever been in a situation like that and wanted to say or do something, but didn't know what to do? Anyone can become an active bystander and learn to address explicit and implicit bias. In this 2-hour interactive webinar, we will explore some of the most common expressions of bias and identify tools participants can use as an active bystander to interrupt bias in daily life.

    Have you ever engaged in a conversation about an uncomfortable or sensitive topic and didn't know how to approach it?

The latter part of this program provides participants with an opportunity to apply what they have learned in a breakout room activity.
