Webinar: Build Your Trans-Friendly Services

Date: Thursday February 25, 2021

Time: 10 AM Pacific time

Working within HIV, hep C and harm reduction, you are likely used to working with folks of varied sexual identities, but might not be as experienced working with people along the gender continuum. We’re partnering with Gwen Haworth to introduce you to Trans Care BC.  We will explore key terms and concepts, along with strategies for supporting gender diverse individuals. Learn practical tips for providing an inclusive and gender- affirming program and organization.

Her previous experience includes work as the LGBTQ+ educator for Prism Services (VCH), frontline support with RainCity Housing and Support Society, and as a youth worker with Richmond Society for Community Living.
