UW-W Community Engagement Center announces virtual community workshop: “Introduction to Gender Inclusive Language & Pronouns” – 6/19

Per an announcement by Community Engagement Center Coordinator Gina Elmore, The UW-Whitewater Community Engagement Center will be hosting a virtual community workshop.

WEBEX EVENT: Introduction to Gender Inclusive Language and Pronouns
June 19th from 12-1 p.m. 

The landscape for creating a gender-inclusive environment is  quickly changing as the words that young people specifically use to name and communicate their genders expands. In a 2017 poll conducted by GLAAD, for instance, 12% of millennials named their gender beyond the cisgender male-female binary. This 45-60 minute workshop will introduce participants to LGBTQ vocabulary and provide background information and platforms to practice using gender-inclusive pronouns. 

Stephanie Selvick, PhD, works as the LGBT* Coordinator at UW-Whitewater where she also teaches “Introduction to LGBTQ Studies” and “Queer Popular Culture.”
