Gender Identity and Expression in Employment
Speaker: Anthony Panacci
Date: May 15, 2019
This webinar will distinguish the often-confused terms of “sex”, “gender”, “gender identity”, “gender expression”, and “sexual orientation”. This webinar will also cover related rights and legal obligations, including:
- the right to freedom from discrimination and harassment
- the duty to investigate, and
- the duty to accommodate.
Our speaker, Anthony Panacci, will also discuss best practices to assist you with maintaining an inclusive workplace.
