Beyond Binary: Expanding the Dialogue on Gender Equity


Join this session to explore strategies that foster gender equity beyond the binary, embrace intersectionality, and create workplaces that celebrate and support the diverse experiences of all individuals. By prioritizing gender equity across the full spectrum and considering diverse gender identities, organizations can redefine the narrative, break down barriers, and create workplaces where every individual feels seen, valued, and empowered, regardless of their gender identity or background.
