    Gender 101:  Cinnamon Rolls not Gender Roles

    Gender 101 is a beginning workshop about the concepts of sex, sexual identity, gender, and gender identity. The workshop provides definitions for these constructs and will discuss in-depth some of the LGBTQIA+ and trans* population identities. The presenter, Lee Helbert, will touch on pronoun usage and those complexities in the trans* vocabulary. 

    Learning objectives:

    • Discuss some of the LGBTQIA+ definitions and trans* population identities
    • Understand more about pronoun usage
    • Recognize that gender is not binary.

    The presenter, Lee Helbert, has been working at Prairie State College in a variety of roles since August of 1998.  She is currently working on her Ed.D. in Higher Education with a community college focus at NIU.   For her coursework, she focused many of her assignments and papers on LGBTQIA+ issues.
