We are thrilled that Frieda E. Smith, our head of finance and operations, is leading the team presenting a workshop at the annual conference of the Association of Science-Technology Centers (ASTC) on September 26, 2016!
The workshop, titled Talking About the T in LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender) is the first transgender focused workshop to be selected for presentation at an ASTC conference. Participants will hear from a trans man, the mother of a trans teen girl, and from Frieda as an ally as she shares information from her interviews of trans people ranging in age from 16 to 65. Frieda was also on the team that was selected to present the first LGBT focused workshop at an ASTC conference 10 to 12 years ago.
If you are attending the conference, please check out what will be an informative workshop about how to create welcoming environments and interactions with those in the the transgender community.
