As rights for transgender people continue to be challenged and threatened, Denver Public strives to be a welcoming place. Join us to learn how to provide excellent internal and external customer service to individuals at your library.
This session will help participants reframe ideas around gender, give them best practices for serving trans customers and colleagues, and end with developing strategies to make their libraries gender inclusive.

Objectives:
• Give empathetic and equitable service to all customers
• Have knowledge of social and legal issues impacting transgender customers
• Challenge assumptions and discuss ways to encourage inclusivity in language and action.
