HVTF Workshop Breakout 1 | Friday, November 11th | 10:40-11:55am
Geeking Out on Gender
Workshop Description: What is gender, anyway? Where does it come from? What ways does it shape the world around us? What does it mean to be cis, trans, non-binary, femme, masc, etc? Join us for a workshop which dives into gender for a rich conversation on fundamentals of language, identity and beyond.
Workshop Format: This will be an interactive workshop with PowerPoint slides and whole-group conversation.
