The report is a call to action to recognize, respect, and nurture Two-Spirit, Trans, Non-binary, and other gender diverse children and youth.

Dr. Jennifer Charlesworth has been B.C.’s Representative for Children and Youth since 2018. She is committed to championing culturally safer care and support for Indigenous families and to helping child-serving systems foster belonging in young people.

Jennifer has worked in the B.C. social and health care sectors since 1977 in front-line child welfare, social policy, program management, and executive roles. She is grateful to be able to weave her diverse experience in provincial government, non-profit and academic settings into the sacred work that the Representative for Children and Youth does to lift up child and youth well-being – individually and systemically.
