Trans-Affirming Practice in Education and the Helping Professions Workshop

The Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion will be facilitating a day-long workshop on trans-affirming practices for educators and helping professionals. In this training, participants will review foundational knowledge related to Trans-affirming terminology and best practices for creating an affirming environment for trans and non-binary students, clients, and colleagues within professions and the community.

There are three modules in this workshop:

  • In the second module, participants will brainstorm strategies and practices that supports trans communities.
  • The last module will involve the participants coming together to learn about the ways they can create and support affirming spaces for Trans communities within Athens.
