ATDps: March 2017 Chapter Meeting
Gender Identity Issues and the Workplace
This chapter meeting will focus on Gender Identity Issues and the Workplace.
Transgender and Gender Nonconforming employees have been part of workplaces for many years, although the topics may still be new to some employers and employees. There is a strong body of supportive work in place, and this Presentation/Discussion is designed to offer an overview of policies and procedures to assist all parties.
Starting with a clear description of what Transgender is (and is not) we can then look at how organizations respond and what resources are available. Often the most useful information flows from an open conversation, and the Presentation is designed to permit and encourage questions.
- Understanding Definitions, Language, and Terms relating to Transgender and Gender Identity
- Answers to questions about Transgender and the Workplace
- Knowledge of existing resources and how to access
- Open discussion, often the best place to solve existing concerns
7:30 AM – Doors open, networking

9:00 AM – Additional networking
9:30 AM – End
