Providing Affirming Services for Transgender and Non-Binary Youth and Families
Transgender and non-binary children and youth, as well as their loved ones, face extensive and severe discrimination, and are particularly vulnerable when accessing community-based services such as mental health services. This training is designed to help staff working with transgender and non-binary clients to ensure that they are providing respectful services that affirm these clients’ identities and experiences and support their well-being. During this session, we will review strategies and best practices to help support and affirm transgender and non-binary clients, their families, and communities – all through the lens of lived experiences of transgender and non-binary individuals. Staff members will be provided opportunities to practice these strategies in order to build comfort and confidence in working with transgender and non-binary clients, so that all are better prepared to contribute to an affirming and welcoming environment.

Understanding the Identities and Experiences of Transgender & Non-Binary Students
As more young people come out as transgender and non-binary at younger ages, it is essential that K-12 schools be knowledgeable about and prepared to meet the needs of transgender and non-binary students and their families. By proactively working to create a transgender inclusive and affirming environment, schools can help decrease the stigma, isolation, and rejection – and the related negative outcomes – experienced by many transgender and non-binary youth at non-supportive schools. Becoming a more affirming school helps support vulnerable students in the present and the benefits are long lasting. To that end, this training will provide the faculty and staff with a strong foundation for better understanding the identities, experiences, and needs of students who are transgender and non-binary, and discuss some of the skills and actions necessary to build a more affirming school.

Building Affirming Workplaces: Supporting our Transgender & Non-Binary Employees
In order to do our best work, we all need to feel safe, respected, and appreciated. For the 1.4 million+ adults in the United States who identify as transgender or non-binary, the workplace often comes with some additional challenges in feeling safe, respected, and appreciated. In order to provide a workplace where transgender and non-binary people can do their best work, it is crucial that employers and colleagues work together to create an environment where these individuals can thrive. This 2-hour online training is designed to help Human Resources professionals increase their baseline knowledge of transgender and non-binary identities, awareness of the common challenges that individuals face in the workplace, and be better prepared to implement related skills. Topics include tips and tricks for learning someone’s new name or pronoun, avoiding common microaggressions, and supporting employees through HR-related systems.
