Diversity and Inclusion Starts Here
In the Workplace
Research estimates that 39% of the next workforce generation (Millennial and Gen Z) identify as Transgender or Non-Binary. It's time to be proactive with employees and consumers, rather than reactive.
TRANSGENDER EMPLOYEES - Diversity and Inclusion in the Workplace
Making your Business Safe and Affirmative for Transgender and Non-Binary Employees
While improving diversity knowledge is a required component of every business, the TGNB population is often left out of the conversation. With more and more individuals identifying as TGNB, exclusion from diversity conversations can have a deep impact on your business. Regardless of your company mission and client base, your employees deserve to feel more than “included”, they should be able to feel affirmed and safe. This half day training will help participants build and encourage gender diversity in their workplace and community, as well as identify key components of your business that are affecting the ability for your TGNB employees to feel affirmed and safe in the workplace.
TRANSGENDER CONSUMERS - A Customer Service Guide to Working with Transgender Consumers
Creating a Safe and Affirmative Experience for Transgender and Non-Binary Consumers
In any business your client equals your profit. It has been shown that the increase of TGNB consumers have grown tremendously within the last five years, thus, the discrimination and mistreatment of transgender and non-binary clients means loss of profit. This half day training provides insight and tools to help your business provide a safe, affirming and inclusive experience for your TGNB consumers as well as an introduction on how to market towards TGNB individuals and their loved ones.
TRANSGENDER IN THE MEDIA - Storytelling With a Transgender Narrative
Working on Getting Trans "Right" in the Media
At a time where emphasis is being put on telling transgender narratives in media, no outlet wants to be seen as doing it “wrong”. According to the New York Times, the transgender population is growing rapidly, with the majority of transgender individuals averaging between 18-25 years of age. These viewers and their peers will soon make up a large portion of media consumers and social media contributors. Transgender visibility and storytelling could make or break content’s success (i.e. the success of Euphoria and Pose vs the social media take down of the L Word and The Dallas Buyers Club). This training will help provide a guide to telling authentic transgender stories, and to help avoid content creators making the same mistakes that twitter and social media love to tear apart.
In Your Practice
Did you know that the most cited barrier to care for transgender individuals, whether medical or mental, is the fear of being met with practitioners who can not provide a safe treatment environment? We can work to eliminate this barrier.
Making your Practice Safe, Inclusive and Affirming for Transgender Individuals
Everyone deserves the right to get medical and mental health treatment in an environment that feels safe. Feeling safe goes beyond a clinician having "knowledge" about their clients transgender status. Safety also includes the way you set up your office, how your staff answers the phone, or even the way your intake forms are written. This workshop will give a brief overview on transgender individuals and help you identify areas in your practice that you can improve upon, as well as come up with action items to be implemented immediately.
TRANSGENDER MENTAL HEALTH - Going Beyond Theory
Working as an affirmative clinician
While many mental health clinicians would like to think they are able to work with the transgender community, there is often a lack of knowledge around what is considered "best practice". No theoretical model teaches clinician's the "right" way to formulate treatment plans or go about setting goals. This workshop will give a brief overview on transgender individuals and highlight key mental health components when treating your clients. It will also provide examples of coping skills and affirmative treatment techniques.
