Gender Literacy:

A Primer for Parents and Educators

Diane Ehrensaft, PhD

Fri, January, 12, 2024, 9:30am-11am,

In-person at Synapse School, Menlo Park

Many parents observe that their kids possess a comfort level with gender diversity, and as parents, we also wish to become more "gender literate.”  This talk will focus on understanding the role gender identity and gender expressions play at various stages in a child’s development.  Dr. Ehrensaft is a developmental and clinical psychologist, researcher, adjunct professor of Pediatrics at UCSF,  and Director of Mental Health at UCSF  Benioff Children's Hospital Child and Adolescent Gender Center.   She is the author of two books, The Gender Creative Child (2016), and Gender Born, Gender Made (2011), and co-author with Dr. Michelle Jurkiewicz of the forthcoming book, Gender Explained.  

FREE for member school parents and educators.
