This interactive workshop will provide an introduction to building inclusive library instruction for transgender and gender non-conforming students. Participants will ground themselves in an understanding of how their core values relate to trans* liberation and learn strategies for translating those values to the classroom. Through the lens of Jackson and Hardiman’s Social Identity Development Model (1997), participants will explore how sitting with discomfort and accountability increases capacity for trans* allyship.
