Watch our webinar - Supporting Our Transgender Colleagues: A comprehensive approach to inclusivity
Individuals who identify as transgender are twice as likely to experience depression and anxiety than Americans overall because of the discrimination and stigma they encounter on a regular basis. Unfortunately, the workplace is no exception. Though organizations say everyone is welcome, the reality is most workplace processes were only built with some employees in mind. Often, specific accommodations for trans employees are retrofitted into existing policies, which can lead to awkward processes and inconvenience at best, and lack of coverage, frustration, and pain at worse. What can employers do to help along all phases of the employee journey?
Our speakers address:
Guidance around using inclusive language in written communications, from job descriptions to the employee handbook to intake forms
Challenges transgender individuals may face when applying for insurance and leaves of absence, and how employers can design inclusive benefits packages and improve leave policies to help mitigate some of those roadblocks
Promoting mental health resources, demonstrating inclusivity through actions, and creating an environment that’s supportive of everyone’s needs
