Gender impacts the way we structure our communities, navigate the world, and relate to one another. In this interactive session, you will have the opportunity to unpack the ways in which you relate to your own gender, as well as reflect upon gender’s role in society. The majority of our time together will be spent on scenarios and case studies, ranging from accommodation policies, communication strategies, tips for setting up counselors for success, addressing push back from parents, and more. This session is designed for participants already familiar with terms and concepts related to transgender inclusion, as we will not be spending much time defining them. You will be challenged to think critically about gender, they ways you have been socialized to navigate relationships with others, and wrestle with hard conversations on how to balance the needs of all of members of our community, including ways in which some camp practices and policies may need to be restructured to create truly inclusive and empowering spaces.
