The Mount Holyoke campus community is invited to attend a panel discussion that will explore the issues and needs of our transgender and genderqueer community. 

Panelists include Lynn Pasquerella, president of Mount Holyoke; Genny Beemyn, director of the Stonewall Center at University of Massachusetts Amherst; Mitch Boucher, a professor at University of Massachusetts Amherst; Isaiah Bartlett, a Mount Holyoke alum; and two students.

The panel will address several questions: What does it mean to be an all women's college as the gender binary becomes less viable for more and more people? How can we mobilize the agency of trans students and faculty as well as strive to create safe, trans-inclusive academic and community settings?
 
The goal of the panel is to offer a platform for conversation about gender diversity and inclusion at all women's institutions. We hope to further the education of faculty, staff, and students as well as offer an opportunity for trans* community members to speak about their experiences within women's institutions. Please come and join in this important and timely dialogue!
