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.

Additional Information

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.
