Institutional-Led Social Justice Reform

May 25 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Free

The current policies for gender expression on BC government-issued ID are an example of a decade long effort in behavioural, intellectual and social change management. Join SPPGA Adjunct Professor Natasha Thambirajah, Dr. Daniel L Metzger, and Parliamentary Secretary for Gender Equity Grace Lore for an inside view on the evidence-based, change management, and stakeholder engagement practices used to gradually shift the BC health sector and provincial government towards recognizing the criticality of recognizing rights of people who are transgender or gender non-conforming to express their gender identity with minimal or no state or medical intervention.
This virtual talk will focus on the types of questions that we asked ourselves throughout the process, post implementation including reflections on what different questions could have been included. Learn more about how theory was translated into practice during the process of modernizing gender expression on government-issued ID and what was learned during the process.
