Our 2018 Roots of Empathy Speaker Series is launching this February 8th! Join us to hear the compelling story of Claire Birkenshaw and our other panelists. Claire is the first school principal in England to transition from male to female. She is now an advocate and has a fascinating perspective on what it was like anticipating and then experiencing her school community's reaction. Claire's story will be followed by a panel discussion. Each guest will share their personal experience of what it’s like transitioning while working in the school system, dealing with identity issues as a student, or being a parent or person who supports trans individuals. Hopefully we’ll all gain some insight from their experiences in the school system, what works, and how things can improve.
FREE EVENT — Please join us February 8th — 7-9pm — light refreshments will be served. Register here. rootsofempathy.org/2018-speaker-series-the-trans-experience-in-education/
