Principles of Gender-Inclusive Puberty and Health Education

Wednesday, May 8th 2019, 3:00pm-4:00pm EST

Presented by Joel Baum, Senior Director for Professional Development at Gender Spectrum

With the emergence of gender diversity as a topic that schools are navigating in new and varied ways, school health professionals are often on the front lines of these efforts. One area in particular–puberty and health education (PHE)–is especially seen as a place where gender diversity is showing up as never before. In this hour, you can learn how health education can reflect the gender diversity of your students and get valuable information about gender for all students. Based on the newly released principles from Gender Spectrum, the webinar will address the rationale for gender-inclusive instruction and give you concrete ways you can help students of all genders feel safe, seen and supported in your school community.

Learning Objectives:

  • Provide rationale for Gender Inclusive PHE
  • Describe 5 principles of Gender Inclusive PHE
  • Discuss pros and cons of not separating students by set or gender in PHE.
