Building Affirming Workplaces: Supporting Trans & Non-Binary Employees
In order to do our best work, we all need to feel safe, respected, and appreciated. For the 1.4+ million adults in the United States who identify as transgender or non-binary, the workplace often comes with some additional challenges in feeling safe, respected and appreciated. In order to provide a workplace where transgender and non-binary people can do their best work, it is crucial that employers and colleagues work together to create an environment where these individuals can thrive. This one-hour interactive presentation is designed to help human resources professionals increase their baseline knowledge and awareness of the common challenges that individuals face in the workplace and be better prepared to implement trans-affirming-related policies.
