    The words "sex" and "gender" are frequently used synonymously, but they actually refer to different, but related, characteristics. So, what is sex? What is gender? And what happens when they don't align? What does it mean to be "transgender"? How do all of these concepts relate to other identities such as sexual and affectional orientations? This workshop will take a deep look into the surprisingly complex world of sex and gender and will culminate in an in-depth discussion of the diversity of transgender identities.

    What does it mean to have privilege? How do your social identities (e.g., race, gender, class, religion, sexuality, etc.) grant or deny you privilege? How do you know when you have it and when you don't? How can we use power and privilege to break the cycle of oppression? This workshop will explore these questions, offering participants an opportunity to delve deeply into their social identities by creating a Multiple Social Identity Profile - a process that reveals how we all have and lack privilege simultaneously.
