Packed with thought-provoking workshops, professional training opportunities, discussion groups, networking, and social events, this one-of-a-kind annual gathering attracts people from all over the world for an uplifting weekend of skill sharing and community building at the Washington State Convention & Trade Center in Seattle, USA.
The workshops were amazing! I only wish I could clone myself so that I wouldn’t have to miss a single one!
Programming for Families and Professionals
Gender Odyssey’s Family programming is for families who are working to navigate the day-to-day realities of raising a gender-diverse or transgender child. As one of the only opportunities in the country to find valuable resources, information, and networking opportunities, Gender Odyssey provides much needed guidance and connections for families as they seek optimal ways to support their child’s gender exploration.
When people ask me how they can get comfortable with their loved one/family member’s gender identity I recommend immersion through attendance at Gender Odyssey!
Gender Odyssey’s Professional programming is for professionals seeking to advance their understanding of gender diversity and transgender identities in children, teens, and adults. Leading experts will offer sessions covering gender identity across the lifespan and life experience. The 2-day Professional Track may serve as a prelude to Family and Community Tracks or as a stand-alone event. Continuing education credits are available.
