Vancouver Panel Discussion & Reception: Trans Inclusion Policies In the Workplace

8 April @ 4:30 pm - 7:30 pm

Pride at Work Canada is proud to have the support of Scotiabank and Norton Rose Fulbright.


In Canada, organizations across sectors have recently begun to acknowledge and attempt to address these disparities in the form of a variety of trans inclusion best practices and policies. These policies have included washroom retrofitting, employee resource groups, mentorship programs and targeted hiring. In 2019, Pride at Work Canada and Bretton Fosbrook, as a researcher at the University of Toronto’s Institute for Gender and the Economy (GATE), partnered to conduct the first trans inclusion workplace policies audit across Canada’s large employers, making use of Pride at Work Canada’s partner network.

We will discuss the findings of the research, provide case studies of inclusive policies and practices, and discuss what the data shows about best practices. The panel discussion will feature professionals who have worked on trans inclusion from our corporate partners and community experts. The discussion will be followed by a lively networking reception.
