Simplifying Transgender Issues for your Business
Gender Diversity can help your School, College or University provide a supportive, non-discriminatory environment for all students, including gender-nonconforming and transgender children.
We help administrators, teachers, and staff gently move from awareness to action in order to create more inclusive learning and social environments.
Our trainings provide accurate, up-to-date, accessible information regarding the best practices schools can implement to create an inclusive environment for all students, regardless of gender status, and on an age-appropriate level.
Increased awareness and education regarding gender identity enables all children to achieve a more open and confident school experience.
Our aim is to not only assist a school in the optimal inclusion of Transgender Students, but to highlight the ways that creating a more inclusive environment benefits all students.

•Understand, adhere and fully implement a school’s anti-discrimination and inclusion policies
