Cultural competency training

Whatever your training needs are, Transcend Legal can quickly get your team up to speed. As both an attorney and a transgender individual, Noah is uniquely positioned to inform audiences both about the legal rights of transgender individuals and provide insight on transgender people from a personal perspective.

A transgender employee or student transitioning in the workplace or school can raise a lot of questions for fellow employees and classmates. Bringing in a trainer can quickly and efficiently address any concerns co-workers and peers may have and head off any possible harassment.


Engaging, interactive and effective

Participants in Transcend Legal's  trainings gain an insider's perspective on transgender issues not readily found in the media or other trainings. Trainings can be tailored to address the needs of your organization's specific needs for cultural competency.

Transcend Legal's trainings engage attendees through a multi-media, interactive presentation that builds on audience participation. Noah shares information drawn not only from his extensive background in transgender legal issues, but also from his personal experiences as a transgender individual.
