Working While Trans
February 26, 2011 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm CST
The National Center on Transgender Equality (NCTE) in conjunction with the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force (NGLTF), just release “Injustice at every turn: A report of the national transgender discrimination survey.” In this detailed and compelling report, they cover employment discrimination, as well as many other forms of discrimination transgender individuals and loved ones experience. At February’s meeting, we will use the survey results as a jumping off point to compare national statistics with our local reality. Ample time will be available for discussion of issues such as on-the-job harassment, loss of chosen career, under-employment, non-consensual outing, forced bathroom choice, the role of transition (helping or hindering in maintaining or pursuing jobs), resilience, and strategies for success. FORGE staff will also reveal a new opportunity for transgender people and loved ones seeking employment in Wisconsin.
