Testimonials

Full Symposium 2016

These testimonials came from attendees at our preceding conference, Gender Conference East (GCE), from 2016.


 "Thrilled to be posed with questions and issues that I may not have previously considered or thought about."


 "One of the most informative and well organized education symposiums that I have attended in many a year."

-2016 Professional Symposium Attendee​ 

Education Track

"As a middle school teacher in a culturally diverse district who is in the processing of beginning an LGBT and ally club, I found the workshops to be very informative and gave me insight to better understand this community. The resources available, the explanations given and the personal stories shared help me to grow as a person and continue to grow in my understanding  to better support this vulnerable group so that I can better assist  and support the youth in this community through their struggles and help them know it is okay, and they are beautiful just the way they are."

-Debra Calle, Middle School Teacher

Mental Health Track

 "This conference provides timely and vital information and support for not only 

professionals working with transgender youth and families, but the families and youth as well.  GCE not only changes many, but also, saves lives."

-WVSocWrkrSam


"This conference was excellent. The presenters were strong and incredibly knowledgeable. I left feeling refreshed, inspired, and excited to bring all that I learned back to my practice working with youth, adults, and families."

-Kelli Knabe, Clinical Social Worker

Medical Track

"I gained so much knowledge in one day, which I am effectively using when working with transgender youth in the pediatric office I work in!"

-2016 Professional Symposium Attendee


"Besides being such a great educational experience, it was so nice to see everyone having fun!"

-Beverly A. Fischer, M.D., Plastic Surgeon and Speaker​

Intersectionality & Legal Tracks

 "The Clinical sessions were profoundly thought-provoking. I walked out with renewed and deepened sensitivity to issues related to intersectionality generally and gender specifically. I learned so much and the space was safe for asking questions. I cannot wait to attend next year."

-2016 Professional Symposium Attendee


"Without knowledge we are ignorant, after we gain knowledge we become accountable"

- Annette Cottle, Parent Advocate

Multidisciplinary & Research

"You will leave this conference a changed person. I was not the same person who walked through the first doors.  Through meeting and listening to presenters and attendees helped me understand myself and the students under my care."
