7th Annual Texas Transgender Nondiscrimination

SummitSummer 2015

The Texas Transgender Nondiscrimination Summit invites interested parties in higher education to discuss what works and what does not work in regards to codifying inclusion of “gender identity and expression” into institutional policy.  The summit serves to find means to this end through discussion of divergent and respective strategies in regard to the inevitable barriers that always arise.
