Thornhill Diversity Committee Presents…


Beyond Pink and Blue:
Exploring and Embracing Gender Diversity

Monday, February 8, 6pm-8pm



Thornhill’s Diversity Committee invites you to an evening of education and insight around gender and how it impacts us all.

We are delighted to welcome Rick Oculto, from Our Family Coalition, who will help us better understand the complexities of gender identities and the depth and breadth of gender diversity. Olivia Higgins, from OUSD, will share the district’s policies and strategies to support diversity and inclusion.

Childcare and pizza for the children will be provided. Childcare is available for all kids TK/K and older. This event is for adults only. For further information, contact diversity@thornhillschool.org or click here for the flyer.
