This presentation will take place on August 18 at 5:00 PM (EDT). The featured speaker, Dr. Chris Chevallier, is a graduate of American University, Stockholm University, and Trinity College Dublin and currently affiliated with the National LGBT Federation (NXF) in Ireland as a Project Leader. Since 2018, Chris has worked with Drs. Conor Buggy (NXF/University College Dublin) and Susan Murphy (Trinity College Dublin) to further gender minority rights in education and broader society alongside NGO and educational partners. While at American University, Chris received a Killam Fellowship and spent a semester at Mount Allison University.

Chris plans to provide an overview of survey results from Trans, Non-Binary, and Gender Non-Conforming students, as well as additional research, that provides insights into their lived experiences. The talk will also highlight major types of harassment, how to be an effective ally and an overview of pressing issues in Canada.

A Q&A session will follow the presentation ‘Safeguarding and Including Gender Minority Students and Colleagues in Higher Education and Research’.

“These students have the same dreams, aspirations, and educational goals as another other student. However, they often face politicisation, misinformation, and numerous barriers. At this pivotal moment in history, we must protect this community and cherish the beautiful diversity it adds to academia.” – Dr. Chris Chevallier

Fulbright Canada is presenting a speaker series focused on the post-COVID world.  In bringing Fulbright Canada subject-matter experts to a broader community, Fulbright Canada’s goal is to create opportunities for thoughtful discussion on a range of critical issues such as supporting social cohesion and inclusion, enhancing public health and wellbeing, and contributing to digital transformation and economic recovery.
