What you will learn:

Increasingly, employees are encouraged and expected to bring their authentic selves to work. However, transgender and gender non-conforming (TGNC) employees often do not experience the psychological safety needed to do so. Many transgender and gender non-conforming individuals continue to face discrimination and harassment in professional settings, which can create distrust, dissatisfaction, and emotional distress.

If we expect TGNC individuals to show up authentically, then we must prioritize creating psychological safety in the workplace and in the broader systems that we influence (healthcare, education, government, etc). In this workshop, you will learn how discrimination continues to negatively impact TGNC individuals, how organizations can and must change to better suit the needs of all individuals, how to challenge your understanding of gender identity and expression, and how to create safe spaces in which TGNC individuals can thrive and find a sense of belonging.
