Equality in the workplace based on Gender Identity has emerged as a major focus for companies in all sectors and around the world. If you get transgender-inclusive benefits points on the Corporate Equality Index, is that all your company needs to do? If you identify as transgender, does that mean you will need to use the company transition plan or are you just changing your name and pronoun preference? If your ERG is working to be trans-inclusive, what are the best practices and what are some step by step ways to reach your inclusion goals? Finally, how might you handle basic gender-identity-related workplace situations that face HR professionals, managers, allies and LGBT employees? This 4-part webinar is a dialogue with gender identity experts Jamison Green, Ann Dunkin, Harper Jean Tobin, and Kylar Broadus to assist you in developing a strong knowledge base for successful workplace gender identity advocacy. Regardless of your current level of knowledge or where your organization is on the path to inclusion, you will benefit from this webinar series.
