RISD LEADS - Beyond Binaries: Creating Inclusive Communities for Nonbinary and GenderQueer Students
Featuring - Jesse Beal, Director of the Women's and Gender Center at Amherst College
Nonbinary and GenderQueer people are becoming more and more visible in media and on our campuses. Join Jesse Beal, a nonbinary activist and educator, for a conversation about gender identities beyond binaries, pronouns, androgyny, gendered language and spaces, and how to create inclusive communities. Participants will deepen their understanding of their gender, as well as the genders of others through dialogue, reflection, and story sharing. Participants will create action steps for how to be a leader in gender-inclusion in their communities.
Fields and Fundamentals: Communication, Community, Inclusion/Diversity
