Supporting Transgender People at MIT:
A Workshop for Staff, Administrators, and Faculty
Increasing numbers of students enter college identifying as transgender. Both staff and students at MIT sometimes choose to change their gender designation and/or presentation while working at or attending MIT. How can administrators, human resource officers, student support staff, campus police, medical/health staff, and others best help and support transgender people at MIT?
Prehealth Advising has invited The Rainbow Lounge to deliver this workshop which provides a background and basic understanding of trans* issues, explains how trans* needs and concerns may differ from those of GLB populations. It will also provide an opportunity to discuss concrete suggestions and ideas for better serving and supporting transgender people. The workshop will provide participants with information and strategies to use in their current work. We can tailor this workshop to the needs and concerns of your specific department.
