Pronouns 101 Training

September 23, 2021 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

What are personal pronouns? How should I use them correctly? What is the differences between gender identity and sex? How can I start a conversation with someone who is questioning their identity? How can I support my trans, cisgender, and non-binary friends and family members?

All these questions and more will be explored during this fact-based virtual training being presented by Pronoun & Gender Educator, Madi Brauer (they/them). Madi’s credentials include:

  • Luther College graduate-major in social work and a minor in dance.

  • Worked as a Family Educator at Helping Services for Youth & Families in northeast Iowa.
  • Gender Sexuality Alliance (GSA) Coordinator at Iowa Safe Schools in Des Moines.
