The Office of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion and the Women's and Gender Studies Program have partnered with the Center for Innovative Pedagogy to host an event series, "Transforming Digital Storytelling: How to Frame, Share, and Discuss Transgender Narratives."
This event series is part of the Center for Innovative Pedagogy's Digital Storytelling Intiative, and we hope that you can join us for the final part of this event series, featuring our guest digital storyteller from the National Center for Transgender Equality in Washington, D.C.!
This event will be a conversational dinner with student leaders, faculty/staff, and our guest digital storyteller. To ensure that all attendees will have an opportunity to meaningfully interact with our campus guest, space for this event will be limited. The ODEI will announce a call for students to express their interest in attending this event in early February, so please be sure to pay close attention to campus-wide emails about this event series.
Rebecca Kling (she/her/hers) is a Washington, D.C., based educator, community organizer, storyteller, and advocate for transgender rights. Since early 2016, Rebecca has worked with the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE), first as the community storytelling advocate and now as the education program director. Prior to joining NCTE, Rebecca worked as a touring educator and performance artist, exploring gender and identity through solo performance pieces and educational workshops. Her multidisciplinary performances incorporated conversational storytelling, personal narrative, humor and more. In 2013, Rebecca was named as part of the inaugural Trans 100, a list celebrating excellence in the transgender community.
