May 18 Seminar on Equity and Diversity – Handouts Available

Issues of gender identity and transgender non-conforming inclusion will be the focus of the chapter’s May 18 seminar in Tualatin. Our presenter will be Derrick Travers.

LGBTQ discrimination and legal rights have been the emergent civil rights arena of the 21st Century, joining the unresolved challenges of racism and sexism on the social justice stage. Employment rights, both as they relate to sexual orientation and gender identity, remain rapidly evolving areas of law and policy. It is increasingly critical that public employer Human Resources staff develop and display cultural competence in managing the work environment of LGBTQ staff and their coworkers.

In this training, participants will hear and learn:

• Compelling disparity data regarding the lived experience of Transgender and Gender Non-Conforming individuals and the broad variety of intersectionality between worklife and gender identity – it’s not just about “which bathroom to use”
• Applicable vocabulary, skills, and strategies for effectively and respectfully addressing issues related to T/GC staff, including respectful use of pronouns and supporting employees in transition
• Personnel Policy developments for managing gender identity issues in the workplace, and the current legal landscape regarding LGBTQ and T/GC employees
