Join us for a webinar to learn the basics about pronouns and gender identity and develop the necessary skills to serve the gender diverse community. Participants will examine how pronoun use effects the lives of trans and nonbinary individuals, and what we can do to create a positive impact. An important aspect of providing vocational and life care planning services is effectively communicating with your client and creating accurate reports. This training will help you to better understand gender identities and personal pronouns when working with your clients.
