Dear Parents and Guardians
Please join us for a conversation about gender expression
and identity as an introduction to an interactive learning experience
that our students will participate in this fall 2016.
This conversation will be led by Jean Malpas, Director of the Gender and Families Project at the Ackerman Institute for the Family.
We will explore the role of gender in our children’s journey of self-discovery, the impact of gender stereotypes on kids’ emotional and social development, how our own habits of language may influence our children’s experience of gender identity, and much, much more.
As we strive to raise children who take care of themselves
and the people around them, who understand viscerally the value of inclusivity, and who have the tools to think critically about their highly mediated world, we are very eager to consider this issue with all of you.
We encourage all parents to attend.
Please rsvp online for refreshment planning or contact James at firstname.lastname@example.org if you plan to join us or have any questions.
We will have coffee and breakfast in the cafeteria starting at 8:30, the discussion at 8:45am in the auditorium.
Gender Variance, with Jean Malpas
