Deeply rooted binary conceptions of gender have negatively impacted the physical and mental health of trans individuals and communities.
The next Real Talk for Real Change symposium, “Trans Care in Wisconsin,” will bring together leading community-engaged scholars to share thoughts on critical issues in trans care, including particular difficulties faced by trans people of color and the rapidly evolving challenges to trans care presented by new policy proposals.
The symposium will take place on Thursday, March 24, from 4 – 6 p.m., online, and feature the following special guests as panelists:
- Stephanie Budge, associate professor, Department of Counseling Psychology
- Sergio Dominguez Jr., doctoral student, Department of Counseling Psychology
- Mollie McQuillan, assistant professor, Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis
The event is hosted by the UW–Madison School of Education’s Offices of Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion (OEDI) and Professional Learning and Community Education (PLACE). This partnership is made possible by the generosity of the Wisconsin Center for Education Products and Services (WCEPS) and the School of Education’s Impact 2030 initiative.
