This webinar will be offered in French.
Wednesday, January 20th, 2021, from 12 PM to 1 PM EST – this event is exclusive for employees of our National & Regional Partners.
The concept of being an “ally” is now in common parlance. How can I be an ally for my colleagues who have a trans, nonbinary, gender creative, and genderfluid child or who are in the process of coming out? How can we better support and help them? How do I correct myself when I make a mistake? Join us for a presentation that will allow you to better understand the experiences of oppression and resistance of trans, nonbinary, gender creative, and genderfluid youth and their families and learn best practices to support them.
Annie Pullen Sansfacon (Ph.D. Ethics, Social work, DeMontfort University, UK) is an Associate Professor at the University of Montreal’s School of social work. Her work focuses on the development of anti-oppressive theories, approaches, and methodologies to promote ethical and emancipatory practice in social work. In her research project, she applies those methodologies to engage participants so that the research does not only contribute to knowledge generation but also, empowers groups that are affected by the problem. Her recent projects include research that aimed at understanding the experiences of adaptation of internationally educated social workers as well as projects related to the experiences of oppression and resistance of trans children and their families. She is also the co-founder of Gender Creative Kids Canada, a Montreal-based community organization that was created as a result of a Social Action Research Project.
