CCA Counseling Services and the Gender Diversity Project (GDP) of San Francisco City College (SFCC) are delighted to offer an awareness-raising training for the CCA community.

Student Survey

All students are encourage to take a couple minutes and complete a gender diversity at CCA survey to help give feedback to the representatives at the Gender Diversity Project. Your participation is voluntary and anonymous.

Topics covered in the workshop:

  • basic terminology about gender identity and expressions
  • ways to incorporate topics of gender identity into curricula/classrooms
  • ways to transform classrooms/departments/campus community to make them more welcoming to students/staff/faculty of all gender identities and expressions
  • awareness-raising resources to use in classrooms and beyond
  • GDP educators and CCA Counseling Services staff on hand to answer questions and address concerns

Note: the workshop will be structured in such a way that will allow time-crunched participants to come for only the first hour, or stay for the full two-hour training.

The Gender Diversity Project is a service-learning project designed to work in service to, and in collaboration with, transgender communities at City College of San Francisco and beyond.

GDP’s mission is to dismantle the stereotypes that perpetuate fear, discrimination, harassment, and violence. GDP’s goal has been to work together in support, education, and advocacy projects to ensure the dignity and human rights.

The GDP has provided training for over 200 faculty/staff at CCSF and 60+ instructors and staff at San Francisco Art Institute as well as reaching community members at many other city and statewide conferences.

Touring the Social Imaginary

CATALYSTRANSIT is a project organized by Ana Labastida, circulating through the Bay Area’s Casual Carpool from Fruitvale Avenue in Oakland to Fremont Street in San Francisco, that questions how we interpret the mundane moments during commutes.

To participate, or for more information, visit www.catalystransit.com.

This project is part of Touring the Social Imaginary, a series of exhibitions and participatory, public programs across the Bay Area organized by PLAySPACE, that map the social imaginary using research-intensive processes to ask questions about places and the people that inhabit them.
