Campuses are currently mandated to foster and create campus facilities that are safe, inclusive and in compliance with Title IX and campus non-discrimination policies. Building new campus facilities and renovating older facilities can be huge projects with many intersecting interests, priorities and requirements — make sure you are addressing the social, legal, political and financial issues before you start!
This webinar will help all those that manage facilities and dictate policies on your campus to create, adapt and provide inclusive and compliant spaces for transgender members of your community. These changes will help your community members feel safe and included.
Join our moderator and two expert presenters as they discuss these challenges and others relating to trans members in your community and the importance of adhering to the Dear Colleague Letter issued by the Departments of Education and Justice in May 2016.
Genny Beemyn, Ph.D., is the director of the Stonewall Center at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst, and the Trans Policy Clearinghouse coordinator for Campus Pride. (Click here for full bio)
