For many transgender, non-binary, and gender-diverse people, pronouns are not simply words, they are a sign of respect, and an affirmation that people see them as they are.

Coinciding with Pride Month, Sheridan Social Service Worker graduate, Corrin Marier, delivered a discussion with students and employee members of the Sheridan Building Positive Space Committee. The conversation was moderated by Dr. Cherie Werhun, Strategic Lead, S-Factor Framework.
