Ladies and Gentlemen, Boys and Girls: Unlearning Gendered Language
MetadataShow full item record
This presentation will focus on the gendered language that we typically use in our everyday vernacular. Through the examination of common words and phrases and even occupations, attendees will be given alternatives to gendered language as well as information on how and when to use gender neutral pronouns effectively. Student leaders and higher education professionals alike will be given tactics on how to address these issues in the classroom, in student leader spaces, as well as within the broader culture in order to enact positive changes. Attendants will also be encouraged to examine how gendered language exists in the larger university culture and how we as advocates and allies can begin to dismantle some of the gendered issues in housing, assessment, intramural sports and other areas that can contribute to an unwelcoming culture to queer and transgender individuals.******This presentation is licensed under a CC BY-ND License.
