What We Offer
Trainings: trans 101 / 201+
Education about trans people begins with an awareness of ourselves and our own biases. In our trans 101/201 trainings, we facilitate processes of self reflection and self interrogation, investigating questions such as: why do trans people experience disproportionately negative outcomes, and what role do I play in this? What assumptions do I have about trans people? Where do my fears around trans people come from? How can we begin to decolonize our ideas about gender? What have we lost through legacies of colonization and white supremacy, and what can we work to restore? Breaking internalized transphobia down into its component parts, we are better positioned to address it within ourselves and our communities.
Business & nonprofit Consultations
Pulling from 13+ years of experience, we offer customized packages of information for any group, including but not limited to businesses, nonprofits, and other organizations. Going beyond inclusivity, we recognize businesses and organizations are influenced by systems of oppression—and that most business entities were not designed with trans people in mind. Rather than providing band-aid solutions to equity issues, we open up organizations to see the unique values that trans people bring to our workplaces, and how our unique experiences are assets, not liabilities. Pulling from the culture and wisdom of trans people—who reject the ways society assigns us to be, and innovate systems that do not work for us—we apply this lens to organizations to help them transform. Using corporate strategies to fuel continuous improvement, we examine what is, and what is possible.
Our leaders have given solo and collaborative speeches and presentations, and participated on panels—both in person and virtually—for audiences as large as several hundred people. Pricing is negotiable based on the scope of work, organizational need, and budget.
