Omicron Delta Kappa (ODK) and the Sexuality And Gender Alliance (SAGA) invites you to join us in welcoming Katie Kramer to campus as she hosts “Gender 101” – a workshop aimed at helping us all become better allies to those in our community. Registration information will be shared via the ODK Facebook and Instagram pages. Contact Maya Gravagna (firstname.lastname@example.org) with questions.
Katie Kramer has been a writer, speaker and activist in the college market for more than a decade. A fierce advocate for the trans community, in 2015 she and her Husband co-founded Camp Indigo, a summer day camp for trans and gender diverse youth, hoping to create a space for kids to be seen and celebrated for exactly who they are.
Never one to shy away from the difficult conversations that help expand our knowledge and our hearts, Katie looks forward to bringing a little challenge and a whole lot of space for growth to your campus.
In today’s transphobic world, just the word “gender” has become almost taboo, or at the very least– something that is happening to “other” people. When in reality, all of us make gender decisions multiple times every single day! We get dressed, we style our hair, we tell people our name, our pronouns, and we all feel good, or not so good about the way the world responds to us based on these things.
In this workshop Katie will meet every individual exactly where they are on their knowledge of gender, biological sex, and sexuality, and help facilitate their own evolution on these ideas. By co-creating the conversation with everyone in the room, Katie hopes for all participants to leave feeling a little challenged by their own preconceptions, a lot empowered in their knowledge of gender diversity, and more confident and ready to stretch their muscles as allies out in the world.
