We know that all children benefit from a school climate that addresses gender role stereotyping and disrupts bullying around gender identity and expression. Join the HRC Foundation's Welcoming Schools for this session that will provide participants with a brief overview of lesson plans, books and resources as well as concrete strategies to create an environment where all students thrive.
