Draw the Line Against Transphobic Violence | Staff (28 Sept 2021)
Egale’s recent report, “Still in Every Class in Every School”, revealed that homophobia, biphobia and transphobia remain rampant in Canadian schools (2021). The study confirms that school conditions are particularly troubling for trans and nonbinary students, who were also the group most likely to report experiencing almost all forms of victimization; including verbal, physical and sexual harassment.

59% of trans respondents had been targets of mean rumours or lies, and 79% of trans students who had been the victims of physical harassment reported that teachers and staff were ineffective in addressing transphobic harassment.

Cultures of normalized transphobic and sexual violence present in school communities produce toxic conditions, not just for trans and nonbinary students, but for all students.

This interactive, 90-minute, instructor-led webinar will help participants recognize and intervene in these harmful dynamics, and build skills for fostering cultures of consent, gender inclusion, and healthier relationships overall.

Participants will leave the session both motivated to continue this important work in their own school communities and equipped with further resources and tools to turn their learning into action.

This session is designed for educators, administrators, and staff in both secondary and post-secondary schools.

Please note that having a foundational understanding of trans identities and gender diversity prior to the session is recommended.
