In this extremely relevant session, Elliott Sharrow (Q2 Assistant at ACR Health and MVCC Alum), will discuss the importance of serving transgender students and community members. We will review basic terminology, misconceptions, and the difficult yet all too common obstacles faced by trans students in a community college setting. Gender inclusive bathrooms and locker rooms will be discussed. You will come away from this workshop armed with simple tools to make you a better ally to our students, thus creating a more safe, open, and welcoming environment at MVCC.
