Trans and Gender Non-Conforming Inclusion in Library Spaces Webinar Recording

On Thursday February 27, 2020 I presented a webinar on “Trans and Gender Non-Conforming Inclusion in Libraries.” Sponsored by the ACRL University Libraries Section Professional Development Committee this session provided an overview of a diverse range of gender identities and experiences and best practices for working with transgender colleagues, students, and patrons.

The slides and speaker notes from my presentation can be found here. You can also check out the PADLET I created as part of the session to allow participants to share what their libraries are doing to support trans and gender variant inclusion. The chat was super lively during the webinar and the collated links from the cat can be found here.

Lastly, if you want you can watch the whole webinar video. Thanks again for all the work of ACRL in supporting this webinar.
