Competencies: Business (Behavioral), Interpersonal (Behavioral), Leadership (Behavioral), People (Technical)
Workplace Application:
Attendees will learn key concepts for hiring and working with transgender employees. 

Today's workforce is one of the most diverse that employers and human resource professionals have seen since the creation of diversity and inclusion initiatives...and it keeps expanding. Transgender people are part of that expansion and make up 1.4 million of the U.S. population-approximately 28,000 living in Indiana. What does this mean? It means the likelihood of employers hiring a trans person is growing, but yet they aren't prepared for it.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn about transgender employees, gender identity, and workplace issues faced by trans individuals.
  • Understand HR's role in creating inclusivity of transgender employees.
  • Learn and discuss initiatives to prepare the workplace for transgender issues and to manage transition in the workplace.
  • Discuss organizational culture and understand how to affect acceptance of transgender workers.
  • Review and summarize learnings and provide time for questions.

In-person session offerings are on a first-come, first-served basis.
