Oregon has made tremendous progress in creating safe and affirming workplaces for lesbian, gay and bisexual employees. However, more than 90 percent of transgender and gender non-conforming people report experiencing harassment or discrimination at work. The Fair Workplace Project for Transgender Inclusion works to improve the experience of transgender people in the workplace.
We offer employers fee-for-service trainings on how to create an inclusive workplace, known as Fair Workplace 101. The program is designed to build a shared discourse around transgender identities, using narrative to detangle concepts such as sex and gender. From there, attendees will receive training on their specific roles as allies to their transgender co-workers and clients, including conversations around pronouns, facilities, and transitioning.
Our training program is flexible, and modifications to our content are often made based on the profile of your organization and the specific audience being trained. We are able to provide our training to most any audience.
