Western Libraries Sponsors Three-Presentation Series: "Serving the Trans Community, in a Collegiate Environment"

Posted on: Tuesday, June 11, 2013 - 1:52pm

Western Libraries and Western Libraries' Diversity Committee are sponsoring a three day summer presentation program revolving around the topic of gender identity at Western. 

The three week program is in response to Western's recently implemented policies regarding the name changes that can accompany the transition process for trans individuals. This policy change is a simple one yet reflects Western's growing understanding of all student needs -- not just those of cis-gendered students -- and the institution's commitment to meet those needs. 

Janis Walworth from the Center for Gender Sanity will be a guest speaker. There will be three presentations, all of which will be held in Wilson Library Room 270, at 1 pm. The topics are as follows: 

July 10: Gender Identity 101

July 17: The Trans Community 

July 24: Best Practices in Higher Education
