As we gear up for the events of the 2011 Communi-T: Portland’s Trans Resource Fair, we’ve taken a moment to stop and think about what we really value as a part of the fair. We are at a loss for words to describe how much we appreciate our incredible range of high-quality providers!
There are exciting new developments happening at Communi-T: Portland’s Trans Resource Fair. One one the developments is the creation of a provider index. The Communi-T Index will be used for several purposes. Primarily, it will serve as a tool for community members to find the most appropriate and highest quality providers. It will also serve as a gauge for you to understand what we in the trans community look for in a provider. One aspect of our providers that we find to be most appealing is their desire to constantly improve their services and their ability to make those services available to the trans community.
Below you will find a questionnaire that will allow the Communi-T committee to create the index. Please note that only providers who have completed an index questionnaire will be considered for tabling and advertisement at Communi-T. Your answers to these questions will be held in confidence by the Communi-T committee for the purposes of compiling the index only.
*For the purposes of the Communi-T Index questionnaire, the term “fluent” means that you exhibit more than simple knowledge about an identity and are able to interact and provide your services in a manner that maintains respect, ease, and comfort with your client.
