Dialogues on Gender Identity: Equality in the workplace based on Gender Identity has emerged as a major focus for companies in all sectors and around the world.  If you get transgender-inclusive benefits points on the Corporate Equality Index, is that all your company needs to do?  If you identify as transgender does that mean you will need to use the company transition plan or are you just changing your name and pronoun preference? If your ERG is working to be trans-inclusive, what are the best practices and what are some step by step ways to reach your inclusion goals?  Finally, how might you handle basic gender-identity-related workplace situations that face HR professionals, managers, allies and LGBT employees?

Virtual Summit Hurricane Series: During the 2012 Annual Out & Equal Summit, we experienced Hurricane Sandy and although over 1400 were able to attend, our featured panel and workshop sessions were disrupted. Many presenters couldn’t get to the Summit and many who wanted to attend were not able to get to Baltimore and missed the workshops that were held.  We also know that during the Summit, there are many choices and some of the sessions, attendees just couldn’t make it to all the sessions they wanted.

So we hosted a Virtual Summit, our Hurricane Series, that would bring online webinars of some of the highest rated workshops or those that were cancelled due to the storm.  Wishing you could share the experiences you had at Summit with your other colleagues?  This series can bring the Summit home and provide a platform for discussions within your Employee Resource Group. Thinking about attending in 2013?  This is also a great opportunity to see the caliber of workshops that are presented at the annual Summit.
