Improving inclusion around gender in our law schools, firms, or other organizations means knowing best practices for supporting individuals who identify their gender as non-binary, are gender non-conforming, or identify as a gender other than female or male. This year, the NALP Task Force on Non-Binary Inclusion in the Legal Profession has taken an in-depth look at how we can improve, and in this interactive workshop, we will share what we’ve learned. Participants will develop and refresh their knowledge of gender inclusion issues. They will leave better able to lead their office in identifying and addressing these issues, as well as concrete ideas and resources to help make their school, firm or organization safer and more welcoming.
