Gender Diversity and Rainbow Awareness
How gender is expressed and experienced has changed significantly in recent years. How we respond to these changes has a direct impact on our ability to support our young people.
There has been a shift in the gender landscape. How gender is expressed and experienced has changed significantly in recent years. How we are able to respond to these changes has a direct impact on our ability to support our young people and those who work with them.
Currently our gender diverse communities are facing barriers in the areas of education, income, health and wellbeing. With education and support we can start to improve the outcomes for our diverse communities.
In this workshop we will:
* Gain a stronger understanding of gender diversity and what the diverse landscape looks like for Aotearoa
* Explore how our students and young people are identifying and where are we going as a nation in supporting our diverse young people
* Identify the barriers and issues many of our diverse young people face and how we can start addressing them
