Preference will be given to workshops that focus on building concrete skills and share best practices based on past experiences. Workshop sessions can be 90 minutes or 3 hours in length. We are looking for workshops and caucuses that, as a whole, will: • Equip participants with concrete and tangible skills that can be applied to their respective fields, such as making links between program implementation and policy advocacy. • Equip participants to advocate within the fields of politics, community organizing or social services. • Reflect the diversity of transgender communities, including race, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, language, class and geography. • Highlight issues impacting transgender communities, including representation from a wide array of disciplines, fields, populations and sectors. • Use innovative training methods, including audio-visual presentations, small group discussions, role plays, simulations and “hands-on” project formats.
