Wednesday, March 22, 2017

Hollis Peterson and Danielle Blackhall will co-present I Am Who I Am: Promoting Inclusion of LGBTQ Individuals Within Our Schools at the 24th Annual California Charter Schools Conference in Sacaramento, California.

Participants will learn proper terminology unique to the LGBTQ community, how to spot issues on campus and develop protocol to ensure compliance with new legal requirements governing bathroom access and other accommodations for students and school personnel. Through real-world hypotheticals, attendees will discuss complex issues involving gender identity and expression, including how to balance competing interests on campus and identify best practices to support transitioning individuals without violating confidentiality.
