Event description

Description

This LCI Seminar is the first in Minnesota to create a dedicated space for women, and individuals who are trans, as well as/or non-binary, gender-nonconforming, and intersex. This seminar will be led by three women coaches. All instruction and assistance will be provided by women/trans/femme individuals. One module “working with BikeMN and the League” will be presented by CJ Lindor, BikeMN’s Education Coordinator, who is male.

Our Minnesota Coach team is comprised of two males and two females who are planning this seminar with a national female coach. They can be reached at coaches@bikemn.org.

Our Coach lead for the Seminar is Vanessa Beard from Houston, Texas. Vanessa can be reached here.

More about creating a safer and more welcoming space:

All participants can expect to be treated with respect, value, and dignity.
Coaches and participants will use preferred gender pronouns for each other.
Gender neutral bathrooms are available at the training site.
Coaches and participants are invited to a private (secret) LCI Seminar Facebook group to chat, share ideas, and provide feedback prior and during the seminar.
Seminar will begin with a micro-training on implicit bias, equity, and safer spaces.

Thank you to those who have provided input on what else we can do to have this space be as safe, welcoming, and supportive as possible. If you have additional feedback please write our coach team at coaches@bikemn.org OR our lead seminar coach, Vanessa.
