A safe arena for participants to develop shared understandings
Trans Inclusion in the Workplace
This 60-minute webinar introduces teams to basic concepts and practical tips for supporting gender diverse staff within the organization. Discussion topics include trans and non-binary identities, gender affirming transitions, common barriers to workplace inclusion for trans and non-binary people, and best practices around language and personal information. First-person accounts of trans workplace experiences and interactive Q&A help participants to connect concepts and reflect on what they can do to support trans and non-binary colleagues. This session provides a safe arena for participants to develop shared understandings of what it means to work in a trans-positive workplace.
