How can we support students with trans* identities?  What are good practices for navigating pronouns respectfully? This workshop will present an overview of terms, concepts, and best practices in gender inclusion.  We will deconstruct the traditional system of a gender binary and explore different ways people are living outside or beyond that system. I will present a variety of ways to support trans* and non-binary folks.  There will be plenty of time throughout the presentation for participation and questions!
