The following information was first published by Sagefox Consulting Group.
Are you a researcher currently doing or planning to do work by, with, or for Trans and Nonbinary learners in computing? We’d love to invite you to a virtual workshop where we will collectively develop a research agenda that includes transgender and nonbinary (TNB) learners in Broadening Participation in Computing (BPC) efforts for inclusive and intersectional policy, practices, and research.
The objectives of this workshop are to:
- Define near and long-term agenda items for intersectional research about the inclusion of TNB learners in computing for the Computing Education Research (CER) community
- Advance our collective understanding of and ability to implement principles of intersectionality in future work
- Highlight existing work, researchers, and thought leaders on the inclusion of TNB learners in BPC/RPP initiatives
- Create a community where this work is valued for those doing, receiving, and being represented by this work
- Provide participants with the opportunity to conceptualize how to expand and refine the inclusion of TNB learners as part of their current and future BPC/RPP initiatives
