Come join us for the next Bi-Monthly Diversity & Inclusion SIG led by Tori Smart and Mat Stuckey.
Also, assisted by Seema Patel and Ankit Shah.
This month we have another special program:
Coming Out and The Transgender Experience
The state of the world can be overwhelming for transgender folks. We’ll cover the current reality and some statistics about the lives of transgender folks and what affirming health advocacy looks like. We’ll also do a deep dive into what coming out at an inclusive employer is like from the employee perspective, and what can be done to help this process go smoothly from multiple perspectives. Join Victoria Yanovich as she personally covers this sometimes less talked about topic. Come prepared with questions and/or share what you know!
