In this podcast this human will share his story as an openly transgender man who came out at 15—one of the first to do so in his entire town. Despite being a rapidly-growing group of over 3 million individuals, trans, nonbinary, and gender-nonconforming people are often left out of DEI efforts and conversations. After reviewing what it means to be transgender and all of the language that comes up in these conversations, we’ll discuss issues facing the transgender community in the workforce and the world at large, why it matters to be proactive about your company, and what your organization can do to create a safe, supportive environment for all people.
- Listeners will gain a strong understanding of what it means to be transgender or nonbinary.
- Listeners will understand the importance of active allyship in all scenarios, even and especially when there isn’t a transgender person around.
- Listeners will feel equipped to be active allies and champions for transgender and LGBTQ+ people in all areas of life.
