About this event

Listen to what professionals have to say about previous events...

The Professionals’ Symposium is designed for individuals who serve transgender, non-binary, and otherwise gender-expansive youth and/or their families. Participants engage in programming and acquire resources designed to build their capacity to support families and young people around issues of gender.

Workshops are organized around a variety of disciplines – education, medicine, the law, mental health/counseling, social services, and child welfare. In addition, a number of workshops focus on a range of interdisciplinary topics including how the intersection of gender and race, religion, class, and other aspects of identity impact a young person’s gender experience.

We will offer workshops for those just beginning in the field of gender-affirmative care as well as a number of in-depth sessions and advanced topics for even the most experienced professionals. Workshops will be specifically labelled as “entry level” or “advanced,” in order to better support participants wherever they are along their own learning curve. There are also opportunities to meet with colleagues and develop new relationships to help strengthen your work with youth and their families.

We hope you will join us for these days of learning dedicated to helping the young people we support to effectively navigate their world.
