Roots of Empathy 2018 Speaker Series, Thursday February 8
Join Roots of Empathy for this fascinating discussion. It will start with Claire Birkenshaw’s story of being the first person to transition while working as a school principal in Hull, England and will be followed by a panel discussion. Each guest will share their personal experiences of what it’s like transitioning while working in the school system, dealing with identity issues as a student, or being a parent or person who supports trans individuals. Inclusion and belonging are central themes to Roots of Empathy – as is empathy of course. Hopefully we’ll all gain some insight from their experiences in the school system, what works, and how things can improve. The panel discussion will be moderated by Mary Ito, CBC Radio host and Roots of Empathy board member.
