Wednesday, November 18, 2020 from 12 pm to 1 pm EST – this event is exclusive for employees of our National & Regional Partners.
Whether they have been out for years or getting ready to transition in the workplace, there’s ample evidence to show that trans workers need more support to succeed in Canadian workplaces. This webinar, presented by experienced trans educator Yasmeen Persad, will provide concrete recommendations on how all workers can support trans colleagues, and advocate for more trans inclusive workplaces. Citing cases ruled on by the Ontario Human Rights Commission, Persad will speak to how employers can not just meet their legal obligations, but go beyond accommodation to acting in allyship with trans communities.

She has been providing education and training around LGBTQ2+ related issues for over the past 15 years.
