12-1 pm, Library Conference Room (Library 120)

The first day of class, whether online or face-to-face, can set the tone for how inclusive and safe the classroom atmosphere feels for trans* and/or non-binary students. Pronoun usage is changing, so figuring out how to address and refer to students in a respectful manner can be a challenge. In this panel discussion, with students and faculty members from the Women, Gender, and Sexuality Studies program, we will discuss several approaches to guiding inclusive classroom interactions, including how to handle first-day introductions and how to navigate the moments when we and/or other students misgender our students.


Pizza will be served!
