Transgender Transitioning of a Colleague

Transitioning to a different gender is a deeply personal decision. There are many unknowns and the added stress of how the workplace will accept the transitioning employee is very real. When discussing with and supporting (being an ally) an employee or co-worker going through the transition, the bottom line and key to personal and team success is simple... it all comes down to respect. This powerful video captures the emotion and fears of a transitioning employee.

Additional Information

Trainer Comments: A powerful look into the private conversation between co-workers - one of whom is transitioning genders. A must-see for any work environment. Insights include: Managers have the responsibility to counsel and coach employees on inappropriate comments and behaviors. We all need to avoid making assumptions about transgender colleagues. We also need to think about how appropriate or inappropriate personal questions are before they ask them of transgender colleagues.
