Beyond the bathroom: Best (and worst) practices in support of Transgender and Non-binary colleagues and customers
This summit moves beyond ‘raising awareness’ and gets down to the real-world business challenges, solutions, and opportunities surrounding Transgender and Non-binary colleagues and clients. Simply being ‘male or female’ is no longer relevant by those 35 and younger, with 50% of Millennials either identifying as Transgender, Non-binary, or knowing someone who does. This shift in gender diversity acceptance is having far-reaching effects on every facet within companies, from Entry level to the C-suite, from employee recruitment & retention to product marketing. This summit focuses on understanding and building a work environment that’s inclusive, has a sense of belonging, and allows for personal and professional authenticity.
Gender Diversity has moved beyond ‘awareness’ and is now about inclusion, a sense of belonging, and personal and professional authenticity.
