Transgender Inclusion in Policy and Practice: Examining U.S. Collegiate Sports
This workshop will provide
administrators in sports as well as administrators in multiple fields critical
reflection and action regarding the inclusion of transgender* people within
their organization. Primary findings of a nationwide thesis study (2011)
examining athletic administrator perspectives on transgender inclusion are
discussed as a way to draw attention to transphobic beliefs and practices that
perpetuate exclusion in our binary society. Participants will take home useful
tools to continue the conversation and critical resistance needed to better
include transgender people.
*Transgenger — An
