Creating a Gender Inclusive School Culture – Dec 5, 2018 – 4pm-7pm

We are looking forward to having a guest presenter from the BCTF and Delta School District, Trevana Spilchen, share insight on creating inclusive schools and a safe environment for all.

This BCTF workshop will help develop an understanding of the risks facing trans, non-binary and gender diverse students, learn protective factors, gain increased familiarity with terminology used by the trans, non-binary and gender diverse communities, and increase awareness of gender identity and gender expression. Best practices for supporting a student through gender transition within the school system will be covered. Although the focus is on trans, non-binary and gender diverse students, gender-inclusive schools help all students to feel safe at school.

Dinner will be provided.
