Transgender Non-Conforming (TGNC) Training
TransNewYork offers a unique opportunity to companies to train their staff in Transgender and Gender Non-Conforming Inclusion in your workplace, thus ensuring that your company is truly diverse and open to people of different gender expressions and identities. Despite a growing global awareness of the struggles trans people face, many employers remain ill-equipped to create the policies and workplace cultures that would support trans employees. Part of the problem is a lack of knowledge about these challenges. Trans individuals are often stigmatized—that is, socially devalued—providing a basis for discrimination against them. Studies suggest that the costs of that stigma and discrimination are steep.
The ever-expanding transgender community is developing its voice and impact in our society, even in the face of harassment and violence against it. By inviting your staff to participate in dynamic and interactive training around how to be culturally competent and welcoming with this population, you will be able to attract the highest level of talent to contribute their skills and brilliance to your business.
TransNewYork’s mission is to educate, empower, and enhance the lives of Transgender, Gender Non-conforming, and Non-binary individuals through advocacy, community visibility, human and social services, workforce readiness, and corporate training. TransNewYork’s corporate training program delivers effective, informative, and compelling programs by using a three-stage model that delivers relevant content through the lens of personal stories of transition in Corporate America.
