Building Bridges: Supporting Transition in the Workplace

Topics: Leadership, LGBT Leadership, LGBTQ, On-Demand Webinars

The Thomson Reuters Institute is proud to announce OutLaws 2020, an eight-part thought leadership webinar series devoted to advancing international LGBTQ2+ access to justice. Our seventh installment examines best practices for employers looking to accommodate their trans employees.

Employers have a duty to accommodate employees who seek to transition in the workplace, but the vast majority have no plan in place to provide such support. Without established guidelines for staff to follow, employers fall short of their legal obligations and miss out on opportunities to support some of the most marginalized members of the LGBTQ2+ community. This session will focus on why the unique needs of each trans employee must guide every transition process and explore the business, legal and moral cases for trans inclusion in the workplace.
