Warning messageProfessional track workshops are restricted to paid registrants. Please click here to register.
Join us, as members of the Trans and Gender Diverse Community (TGDC) and professionals in the associated fields (legal, medical, financial, behavioral health, and education) bring a framework of perspectives to identify gatekeeping effects that sustain inequity in marginalized communities. In this panel discussion we will: (1) Re-evaluate how cisgender and TGD professionals alike are marginalizing the TGDC as gatekeepers, (2) Identify and recognize internalized & horizontal oppression and normalized microaggressions, (3) facilitate change to support both TGD colleagues and community members.
1-Participants will gain critical insider perspectives on the harmful and discriminatory practice of gatekeeping through the lenses of TGD professionals. 2-Participants will be able to implement changes in their practices that support equal access and opportunity for TGD colleagues and community members.
