During this lecture, Nicholas Henriksen will examine cisgenderism within the U-M community and present national and institutional data that will serve as a call to action to advocate for a more gender-inclusive campus.
This lecture will also explore English terms and concepts that promote a shared understanding of sex and gender vocabulary, and will examine real-life case studies, allowing participants to develop practical strategies for promoting a trans- and nonbinary-inclusive campus culture.

At Michigan Engineering, the job of creating a more diverse, equitable and inclusive community rests not within one organization or group of people, but with all of us. Our people-first framework builds upon Michigan’s greatest strengths and is a blueprint for how we aspire to teach and practice engineering – closing critical gaps, and elevating all people.
