We have been taught that there are two genders: male and female, and that there are physical and behavioral characteristics which normatively belong to each group. But is that true?

This webinar will explore the idea of gender as a social construct, and will discuss the ways in which it informs our perception and interaction with clients and communities.

Upon completing the webinar, participants will be able to:

Identify the difference between sex and gender

Articulate the difference between gender identity and gender expression

Understand the impact of norms and bias surrounding gender

Recognize ways the social construct of gender impacts their practice


Presented by:

Ashley Heidebrecht, MSW

and the Diversity and Resiliency Institute of El Paso- a project of the Borderland Rainbow Center
