Join us for an enlightening session on "Gender Sensitivity and Inclusivity," featuring Dr. T.J. Tallie, our valued Community Partner.

This brief seminar will help us all understand larger conversations around gender, identity and self-expression. We'll learn histories around concepts such as pronoun use, and discuss possible ways to make people feel more included as we navigate ideas of gender and personal identity.

Pizza and drinks will be provided. RSVP below.

If you have any questions for Dr. Tallie, we encourage you to submit them ahead of time when you RSVP, either anonymously, or by providing your name.




This informative session is hosted by the Learning DEI Committee and is sponsored by the DEI Council, reflecting our Institute-wide commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion.
