This informative webinar, presented by educator and writer Teddy Syrette, will allow participants to gain an understanding about the term ‘2-Spirit’, colonial impacts and the unique challenges faced by Indigenous peoples who identify as LGBTQ2+. This one-hour presentation will cover a historical timeline, highlight barriers to employment for 2-Spirit people and help initiate thinking on how attendees can provide access to employment and advancement for 2-Spirit and queer/trans Indigenous people.
