Transgender Education & Awareness Services

TransPonder created Transgender Education and Awareness Services (TEAS) to fulfill our commitment to educate the community at large.

Transgender people are a part of all communities, and our work is always intersectional. True positive change for the transgender community is created through:

  1. supporting personal efficacy from within the trans/gender diverse community
  2. supporting institutional systemic change in the broader community through consultation, training, and education delivered by the community

At TransPonder, we have learned during our time of providing training across the state of Oregon to a broad spectrum of communities and organizations that continuous training practices help foster actual systemic change and create a harmonious and inclusive environment.

Regardless of whether you are at the beginning of this work or ready to build on a foundation, TransPonder TEAS services are designed to best suit organizations in supporting institutional and systemic change.

Please complete our Request a Training Form and the TEAS education team will reach out to you to schedule an initial education consultation.

Purchasing training through TransPonder supports culture change in your organization, and also directly supports the local trans/gender-diverse community.

Whether this is the first step, or you are already moving along the path, we have options to support you!
