For many transgender, non-binary and gender-diverse people, pronouns are not simply words, they are a sign of respect and an affirmation that people see them as they are.

To coincide with Pride Month at Sheridan, we invite you to join us for this session delivered by Sheridan Social Service Worker graduate, Corrin Marier, in discussion with students and employee members of Sheridan's Building Positive Space Committee. The conversation will be moderated by Dr. Cherie Werhun, Strategic Lead, S-Factor Framework. 

From this webinar, you will take away:
  • An understanding of the terms "gender identity", "gender expression", "cisgender", "transgender" and "non-binary"
  • How to use pronouns and neopronouns in conversation
  • Knowledge about the impact of "misgendering"
  • The connection between the use of pronouns and mental health
  • Steps you can take to become an ally for trans people

June is Pride Month and Indigenous History Month.
