Teaching Trans Health: Effective Workshop Facilitation and Capacity Building

Thinking about how best to share what you’ve learned after the conference is over? Teaching about trans health and trans inclusion, formally or informally, is a vital step in expanding trans-competence in a variety of settings. This workshop will provide an interdisciplinary introduction to teaching about trans health and trans communities, building curriculum and facilitation skills, sharing new information about trans health, and approaching capacity building using frameworks that are effective, accessible, and trans-affirming.

Intended audience(s)

Transgender people and cisgender people working in solidarity with trans communities who want to expand their ability to teach and facilitate effectively on trans health topics and trans inclusion.
