Creating a trans-welcoming environment
Creating a trans-welcoming environment involves more than an agency checking off boxes on a cultural competency checklist. This webinar reviews key transgender-specific 2011 research data highlighting why transgender victims/survivors are hesitant to access services and how victim service agencies can begin to address these concerns through creating a more trans-accessible and –respectful environment. Tangible and intangible practical details are discussed, including common components such as policies, paperwork, and procedures. Stories and examples emphasize the pros and cons of individual action steps, as well as best practices.
