Understanding Nonbinary Through a Racial Lens
The Office of Gender & Sexuality is proud to partner with the Transgender Training Institute to offer this webinar at no cost to students.
The term “intersectionality” was coined in 1989 by Dr. Kimberlé Crenshaw to describe how race, gender, class, and other characteristics overlap with one another in a person’s individual experience. This webinar will be an exploration of what it means to be non-binary, with multiple intersections of race and class. We will provide participants with the foundations of knowledge and practice needed to build affirming and inclusive environments for black people and people of color. If you are interested in learning more about non-binary identities through a racial lens, join in this interactive and affirming webinar!
As a result of this webinar, participants will be able to:
- Develop their working knowledge of gender expansive terminology and experiences.
- Recognize gender expansive microaggressions and explain the impact of microaggressions on mental health and well-being of gender expansive people.
- Understand the impact of intersecting oppressions on gender expansive people.
