Inside the Trans Experience – Understanding and Accommodating an Employee in Transition
Date: September 7, 2016
Most people are cis gender – comfortable with the gender they’ve been assigned at birth. They never experience, or certainly even consider, what it’s like to not be comfortable as male or female. There is, however, a growing percentage of people who do not consider themselves as cis gender and identify more comfortably with the spectrum of gender identity. Those who experience this deep discomfort are faced with choices: live their lives in a secret way or publicly step into their authentic identity.
For a non-cis gender person, there are staggering stats of high unemployment, high levels of mental illness, and suicide.
