Upcoming Seminar on Transgender Issues in the Workplace

While an increasing number of employers welcome and support transgender employees, many employers are unprepared to address sensitive issues, including the use of preferred pronouns, establishing transgender-inclusive policies, and navigating an employee’s gender transition. Join Ulmer attorneys on Monday, April 8, for an informative CLE seminar on “Transgender Issues in the Workplace” co-hosted by the firm’s Diversity & Inclusion Committee and Employment & Labor Group.

William D. Edwards, Chair of Ulmer’s Employment & Labor Practice Group, will moderate a discussion with Beck Bailey, Deputy Director of Employee Engagement for the Human Rights Campaign, who will share his personal experience as an out transgender man to increase awareness and understanding of the challenges faced by transgender individuals before, during, and after their transitions.

Following Beck’s story, Ulmer attorneys will highlight what’s happening in cases currently pending and initiatives at the legislative level to increase legal protections for transgender individuals. Program highlights will include interactive discussion about how employers can achieve compliance with evolving workplace requirements. A panel of in-house professionals will discuss how they have worked to create inclusive environments for transgender employees.
