Town Calls are monthly hour-long webinars that feature guest speakers on current LGBT topics. We will discuss the issues, polices, benefits, trends and breaking news facing LGBT employees. This is an interactive learning experience with a Q&A session after each presentation. Town Calls are designed to help Employee/Business Resource Groups, Human Resources, executives and busy professionals. We also serve private sector, federal and non-profit employees. Town Calls are recorded so they can be used for training within your organization.

Implementation of Industry-wide Transition Guidelines for Employees and Employers

The creation of workplace transition guidelines takes the participation of advocates, industry experts and members of the LGBT community. Participants will be guided through an outline that includes LGBTQQIA definitions, legal perspectives, workplace transition guidelines, business cases for inclusion of LGBTQQI employees, key findings in employment and retention of transgender people, becoming an ally, and various resources. Discussions focused on capturing best practices will provide transgender, queer and questioning individuals educational resources for colleagues and management that engenders an inclusive environment of acceptance in the workplace. These guidelines are intended for management, human resource professionals, and diversity and inclusion personnel to facilitate employees transitioning in the workplace. The guidelines that the Transgender Advisory Committee (TAC) is developing will provide a comprehensive ready rational and justification for inclusive policies and insurance benefits for transitioning employees. Since November 20 is also the Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDOR), we will also take part of this call to educate on the violence experienced by transgender community members and remembe those we have lost this last year.
