  • Expert Discussion on “Transitioning Employers: A Survey of Policies and Practices for Trans Inclusive Workplaces”

    Speaker Series | Panel Discussion


    In Canada, organizations across sectors have recently begun to acknowledge and attempt to address disparities faced by transgender and gender non conforming people through a variety of trans inclusion practices and policies such as washroom retrofitting, employee resource groups, mentorship programs and targeted hiring. In 2019, Pride at Work Canada and The Institute for Gender at the Economy at the University of Toronto’s Rotman School of Management, partnered to conduct the first trans inclusion workplace policies audit across Canada’s large employers, making use of Pride at Work Canada’s partner network. The results show that large employers are taking some of the first steps towards basic accommodations but still have gaps in providing truly inclusive workplaces.

    The event will focus on launching the report—”Transitioning Employers: A survey of policies and practices for trans inclusive workplaces”— in a panel with community and corporate partners about the impact of trans policies in the workplace. The evening will conclude with a lively networking reception provided by The Institute for Gender at the Economy.
