Panel Discussion: From Acknowledgements to Acceptance – Supporting Gender Expression

  • 29 Oct 2021
  • 4:00 pm – 5:00 pm
  • Virtual

Authentic self” is one of the most common phrases that one hears when we speak of Inclusion at workplaces. The ability of an employee to bringing one’s own self, or being the authentic, particularly in the context of workplaces, is directly proportional on how the organization demonstrates being an authentic employer. Often, a huge segment of workforce population chooses to not bring their authentic selves due to the non-existent or rather poorly equipped policies and workplace cultures that would acknowledge and accept gender expressions.

This panel discussion would seek to cover the following:

-Who is responsible to manage gender transitions

-Answers in place to FAQs wrt dress code/rest rooms etc.

-Management’s expectations wrt staff, transitioning employees

-ERGs that support the particular group

-Inclusive Language for all communication purposes.
