Gender Identity

  • This workshop will consider the shifting cultural perspective and factors associated with Gender Identity and also the potential impact on children, young people and their families and schools.


The number of children and young people reported to be questioning their gender identity has been rising considerably over recent years. There is growing confidence in our young people to challenge gender constraints and stereotypes.


The session will also explore how we can provide supportive school environments for children and young people who may be experiencing gender-related concerns.
