Making Your Business Safe and Affirmative for Transgender and Non-Binary Employees
Intended Audience: All Levels
Attendees will learn the 'dos and donts' of supporting and providing a safe and inclusive space for a transgender employee in their business.
While improving diversity knowledge is a required component of every business, the TGNB (Transgender and Non-Binary) population is often left out of the conversation. With more and more individuals identifying as TGNB, exclusion from diversity conversations can have a deep impact on your business. Regardless of your company mission and client base, your employees deserve to feel more than 'included', they should be able to feel affirmed and safe. This training will help participants build and encourage gender diversity in their workplace and community, as well as identify key components of your business that are affecting the ability for your TGNB employees to feel affirmed and safe in the workplace. This presentation will also provide easy to understand resources, one-sheets and guides for HR staff to with and utilize in their businesses.
