Willy Wilkinson – Navigating The Gender Spectrum
August 27, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm
Join us as we explore the breadth of identities associated with trans and gender nonconforming communities, and how to utilize culturally competent language and behavior for addressing and working with this population. We will learn about how we can come together to support this community.
