This workshop can be tailored for the classroom or the workplace.
In this session I will provide context for the gender binary as a lasting legacy of colonization in our country which continues to affect us all. We’ll will reflect on their own gender experience, better understand the indigenous roots of expansive gender identity and expression, and leave with some practical tips for how to participate in creating a more inclusive and affirming environment for trans and non-binary people.
In this presentation, I provide context for the gender binary and the ways that it continues to show up in our society, including our work places and in elementary classrooms. Participants will reflect on their own experiences, learn critical gender terminology, and leave with concrete action steps.

Unpacking Power and Privilege
In this 1-hour virtual session, Bex Mui, M. Ed., will guide participants through an exploration of the many facets of identity from race to sexual orientation to gender and even spirituality, and the ways that these connect and overlap. We’ll discuss the aspects of our identities that seem to appear on the surface, and challenge the ways that we often unknowingly create assumptions about people’s experiences. Bex will share her own life journey and invite participants into reflections about where power and privilege live in our society, and what we can all do to create more just and equitable working environments.
Building Healthy Relationships
Strengthening Boundaries and Consent
This virtual, 1 hour workshop is student-centered and aimed at middle or high school students. I present my proactive approach to strengthening students’ understanding about identity in order to help them better know and then communicate their own boundaries. I teach perspectives about intersectionality, gender and bodies, sexual orientation fluidity, and a variety of connection and relationship structures. Students reflect on their own identities, wants, and needs to strengthen their skills in healthy relationship building - with themselves and others.
