Gender Education and DeMystification Symposium
February 22 @ 11:00 am - February 23 @ 8:00 pm
The Gender Education and DeMystification Symposium (GEMS) is an annual event designed to offer a clinical and educational perspective regarding gender identity. Educational Consultants, clinicians, and program staff who are interested in learning more about shaping the conversation regarding gender awareness and acceptance in the mental health industry are encouraged to attend. Symposium attendees will be given an opportunity to hear from the nation’s leading experts and attend break-out sessions covering a wide range of topics focused on assisting transgender children, adolescents and young adults. GEMS seeks to make this information accessible to multiple audiences by alternating the location of symposium on an annual basis. GEMS is a not-for-profit in the State of South Carolina. This allows the organization to further its mission to be a long lasting resource for programs and professionals alike.
