Gender Identity Issues and Leadership

One-day Workshop

Penn State Harrisburg’s Office of Continuing Education and School of Public Affairs are offering a one-day workshop. Attendees will gain training in leadership and gender identity issues.

Popular culture has embraced the spectrum of gender identity issues within society. The conundrum is dealing with the day-to-day realities of “gender” entrenched within various arenas in relationship to leadership. This one-day workshop tackles the “difficult” topics surrounding this issue. The subtopics of the programs are the following: communication, diversity, legal issues, conflict resolution, self-assessment, accountability and so much more. The leadership skills gained from the event will catapult the participant from contributor to a person requested to lead others into 2020. 

Participants can register to receive one-day workshop, and/or education units (CEU).

Fee: $195.00
