2021 Uncomfortable Conversation Dialogue #8

“Helping Transgender employees feel a true sense of belonging in the workplace”


Despite growing public knowledge and awareness of Transgender individuals, many still face stigma, hostility, and discrimination in the workplace. Some employers are not equipped with the supportive Culture or policies designed to protect and support their Trans employees, leading to issues with retention and overall job satisfaction. In this eye-opening, candid discussion, attendees will hear individual accounts of what it is like to navigate a workplace as a Trans individual while remaining authentic and expressing your true gender identity.

Attendees will walk away with the tools needed to become Allies for the Trans community and help to promote and cultivate a more Trans-inclusive workplace that is open, honest, and accepting of all gender identities.
