Cultivating a Trans-Inclusive Workplace

Trans people are increasingly visible yet face significant challenges in almost all aspects of life, including the workplace. 63% of trans people report being discriminated against because of their gender identity, while 49% report being asked unnecessary or invasive questions at work (KFF / The Washington Post).
Through education, compassion, and intentionality, you can build a more inclusive and equitable workplace for trans people. In this session, you’ll learn a variety of practices you can implement to help trans coworkers, customers, and other stakeholders feel like they belong in your organization.

Learning Objectives

  1. Learn about the rich complexity of gender identities, including terms such as transgender, nonbinary, genderqueer, genderfluid, and agender
  2. Identify challenges that trans people experience in the workplace
  3. Discover interventions and trans-inclusive language practices that can help create a more equitable and inclusive experience for trans people in the workplace
