Fall 2018 EAP Programming
Getting to Know My "New" Colleague
Date: November 14th, 2018
Time: 12:00pm - 1:00pm
Presenter: Dr. Kelly Clark, Ed. D. Director of the Q Center
Location: University Union, UUW 325
When a colleague makes a gender transition, relationships can be strained. Even when we are happy for them, it can be difficult to know what to say, what not to ask and generally how to support them at work. Dr. Kelly Clark, Director of the Q Center here at Binghamton, will create a brave space for cisgender folks (people who are not trans) to muddle through the struggles they encounter when learning to be an ally to a transitioning colleague. This will be a cisgender only space. Transgender folks, thank you for understanding that we need a safe space to learn & grow.
