"Diversity and inclusion have tremendous value to the performance
of any entity, as evidenced by robust decisions, expedient implementation,
and rapid adoption." - ATD Diversity and Inclusion Blog
Crucial to this equation is the term inclusion which communicates that
all individuals are valuable to the organization, not just those who
are "different." Inclusion confers importance to the opinions,
talents, and skills of all team members.
Yet, even in today's more enlightened organizations, there is a class
of individuals, often unaccounted for and frequently misunderstood,
who continue to encounter both cultural and administrative challenges
to participating in fully accepting work environments.
For Leadership and D&I functions, recognizing and facilitating the
inclusion needs of Transgender and Gender Non-conforming (T&GNC)
individuals is a complex and sensitive undertaking. Effectively creating
and sustaining an accepting work environment that promotes innovation,
engagement and productivity for T&GNC employees is relatively uncharted
To help your organization with this journey, today's workshop, provided
by three Transgender professionals, will provide participants an opportunity
to learn and apply concepts, tools and strategies for building and/or
enhancing Transgender and Gender Non-conforming inclusive work places.
