We’ve Got Your Back! Learn How to Show Up for Your Transgender & Nonbinary Colleagues
June 16 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
This year has tested the resilience and brilliance of transgender and nonbinary people living in the United States. Given the tragic spike in the murders of largely of Black trans women in 2021, coupled with the surge of anti-trans legislation – over 130 bills introduced in over 30 states – business leaders have a tremendous opportunity to show up for their transgender and nonbinary employees, and employees with transgender and nonbinary family members.
After all, research suggests that the future of work will become increasingly nonbinary with 1 in 4 Zoomers expected to transition genders at least once during their lifetime. How then can we prepare leading employers for the future of work? What can be done today to support the majority of business leaders who still need to build gender inclusive policies, practices, and systems for their current transgender and nonbinary employees?
If you’re interested in exploring these critical questions while enhancing your allyship skills, then RSVP for NGLCC’s June 16 panel discussion. There you will gain powerful insights from transgender and nonbinary DEI thought leaders including Tatyana Moaton, Autumn Wylder and Nico Calvo Rosenstone. Together we will gain knowledge, skills, and confidence to show up for our transgender and nonbinary colleagues.
