What does it look like for an urban youth center to authentically affirm the gender experiences across various intersections of identity of the young people they serve? Join staff and members of the RYSE Center in Richmond CA as they share how they have used various approaches for building youth leadership through gender inclusive practices. How can the development of organizational culture and norms be leveraged to create greater inclusion? In what ways can such a culture be visibly represented in the programs the organization holds? Participants will hear about how intentional practices and values--Putting Youth First, Encouragement of Pipeline Staff, Providing Opportunities for Youth to share w/ Adults Best Practices--lead to more inclusive spaces for youth of all genders and identities.
