Senior Manager, Professional Development

Joel Baum is responsible for overseeing all aspects of Gender Spectrum’s professional development programs. He facilitates trainings, develops curriculum, consults with caregivers and professionals, and provides resources in service of a more compassionate understanding of gender and young people. As the founding member and director of education for the Child and Adolescent Gender Center at UCSF-Benioff Children's Hospital, he is frequently called upon to help institutions think more expansively about the gender diversity of all children and teens, and find ways to create more gender-inclusive conditions accordingly. While being an educator for more than thirty years, he has also served as a school reform coach with the National Equity Project and a professor in the Department of Educational Leadership at California State University, East Bay.
