2022-2023 Psychology Department Speakers Series

Toward Trans Allyship: “They” Isn’t Plural and Other Lessons in Gender Diversity

DateWednesday, February 15, 2023

Time: 1-2:30 p.m.

Location: Wisner-Bottrall Applied Technology Center (ATC), Room 168

In the wake of the deadliest year on record for transgender and non-binary people, communities and individuals are not only poised for, but called to, action.  But centuries of misinformation and misunderstanding can impede these efforts and, ultimately, change.  During this session, Melissa Selby-Theut, LMSW, Associate Director and Director of Prevention and Community Education at Grand Valley State University, will explore the fundamental tenets of gender in light of current research and dispel common myths with the goals of increasing understanding and promoting gender justice.

This session is at no charge and is open to students and the community. No registration is required.
