Intersex Awareness in the Workplace
Thursday, October 25, 2018 | 12:00pm Pacific (1hr)
People with intersex traits—referring to “any range of characteristics that may not fit traditional conceptions about male or female bodies” (InterACT Advocates)—may encounter various forms of discrimination throughout their lives and in the workplace. Yet conversations around sex- or gender-based discrimination at work, especially in the United States, rarely take intersex issues into account. Ask yourself: how is your own company currently involved in this space?
Join Out & Equal for our first webinar focused exclusively on intersex issues in the workplace. Kimberly Zieselman, Executive Director of InterACT Advocates for Intersex Youth, will provide an overview of intersex issues and give insights on how these issues manifest in the workplace, while Debbie Cohen of GE Healthcare will then discuss how companies can better support their intersex employees, drawing from GE’s own experience in this area.
If your company is looking to expand its diversity initiatives to be inclusive of intersex employees and communities but is unsure where to start, this webinar is for you.
