Seminar - Understanding Gender Identity and Gender Expression -October 5, 2017

In 2017 the University of Alberta amended its list of protected grounds in the Discrimination, Harassment, and Duty to Accommodate Policy to include Gender Identity and Expression.

We are fortunate to have Birju Dattani (Assistant Regional Director for the Alberta Human Rights Commission) and Shayne Golosky-Johnston (Coordinator of Where the Rivers Meet, Institute for Sexual Minority Studies and Services, University of Alberta) presenting on and discussing:

• What is meant by gender identity and gender expression?
• What accommodation must employers provide to support employees that are transitioning?
• What accommodation must service providers make available when providing services that are customarily available to the public?
• What are the best practices in creating respectful, inclusive environments for all including transgender individuals?
• Information about gender diversity from an Indigenous perspective
