Our hope is to continue to provide communication and transparency as we move forward with the analysis and next steps of the LKC Gender Identity & Expression Survey. At this time we would like to provide some updates and information. Most importantly, we want to convey the need to explore these topics and engage in the critical and transformational conversations to move us forward. This process cannot, and should not be an overnight venture. It will take time and we thank you for your insights and patience.
Emergent Themes & Strategic Subgroups:
In our last email we highlighted three emergent themes. We also asked NASPA members to join the Strategic Subgroups for the emergent themes. Each subgroup is charged with delving deeper into the emerging themes presented in the data from the initial survey. Subgroups will review the data and identify presenting problems, implications, and suggestion for future research and practice. Over 20 members have indicated interest in serving on the subgroups. Below are the themes and the subgroups leaders for each group. Groups have begun to communicate.
1. Name Change:
3. Practice Review:
Data from the Initial Survey: We understand that members who are not part of the subgroups may be interested in reviewing the data. Our team is working to develop opportunities for this to happen. More information will be available next month.
Again, we thank you all for your continued support and engagement. Should you have any questions, thoughts, or ideas, please feel free to reach out to a member of the initial analysis group below:
