Develop practical skills to navigate Title IX and gender identity.
Does a faculty member have a right to intentionally misgender a student? Do they violate Title IX if they repeatedly deadname a student, but they don’t know that deadnaming is offensive? Does a faculty member have a free speech right to insist on calling men Mr. and women Ms.? Does a faculty member’s academic freedom allow them to fail a student for interpretations of the Bible that don’t comport with their own beliefs? Does an institution violate an employee’s religious freedom by insisting she use a restroom that is also being used by someone she considers to be of “the opposite sex”? Can you discipline that employee for publicly protesting about her belief that she is being forced out of her own restroom?
While political battles and lawsuits continue, these are real-world questions you need to be able to answer today. This half-day workshop offers practical advice and survival skills for those who are navigating the complex and emerging conflicts related to gender identity and expression in the higher education environment. The faculty will discuss relevant court decisions, presidential executive orders, and federal guidance, following which participants will break into small groups to discuss a variety of case studies. The group will then reconvene and discuss the exercise as a large group with feedback and guidance provided by the faculty.
