NEW! WPATH GEI Intersectionality & Diversity Workshop
Live Session: Friday, February 2, 2024: 10:00am – 2:00pm EST
The NEW WPATH GEI Online Intersectionality & Diversity Workshop Breaking Barriers: An International and Intersectional Exploration of Access to Gender-Affirming Care for Transgender Youth and Families is intended for different health and mental health related professionals who work with transgender and gender diverse individuals and their families/loved ones. We have invited different trainers from different disciplines to present and to share their clinical experiences in working with different transgender and gender diverse minority groups.
Embark on a transformative journey with us at the annual WPATH conference 2024 through our groundbreaking interdisciplinary pre-conference panel presentation, "Breaking Barriers." This session will offer an exploration of the intricate landscape surrounding access to gender-affirming medical and mental health care for transgender and/or gender diverse youth and their families. With a global perspective, this panel will delve into collaborative efforts to overcome challenges and foster inclusivity.
Our panel will comprise experts spanning disciplines including medical, pharmacological, mental health, law, and advocacy, collectively providing unique insights to unravel the multifaceted barriers on a global scale. The session will emphasis intersectionality, delving into layers of identity such as race, ethnicity, socioeconomic status, geography, etc., which intricately shape individuals' access to gender-affirming care.
Key Discussion Points:
The workshop will include various topics about working with transgender individuals and their loved ones with different intersectionality and diversity backgrounds and issues. The main goal is to provide current clinical evidence-based practices and information on ways to work with these minority groups by learning about our own bias, identifying their unique and extra stressors, and developing some clinical skills.
REGISTRATION IS CLOSED.

The book club's purpose is to provide its members with an insight into the lives of transgender and gender-diverse individuals from various regions of the world, as expressed through written works, digital media, artwork, and performances. Through experiencing these creations and discussing them with their creators, the club hopes to reveal the challenges and obstacles these individuals face, as well as the cultural, social, and political environment that influences their life choices and shapes their behavior. This understanding will enable care providers to approach their work without personal bias or prejudice, providing affirmative care that is free from judgment.
