Non-binary employees and jobseekers are often left out of narratives of gender inclusion in the workplace. This member workshop will address the unique experiences of non-binary employees and jobseekers and what needs to change for their full participation. Utilizing case studies, this practical workshop will provide solutions for cultivating belonging for your non-binary employees and non-binary job seekers. We will also showcase data from our Transitioning Employers: A survey of policies and practices for trans inclusive workplaces regarding the solutions that employers could pursue to make a fully gender inclusive workplace.

Learning Goals:

  • The experiences of non-binary employees and job seekers
  • How to use inclusive language and inclusive procedures
  • Creating belonging for non-binary employees and job seekers


  • Human Resources professionals
  • LGBTQ2+ employee resource group members
  • Diversity, Equity, & Inclusion Professionals
