Challenges for Transgender Workers, Their Co-workers, and Employers

 

Bloomberg often covers compelling issues that affect working people. Today it examines how transgender workers struggle to deal with their transition while on the job. Co-workers often ask ignorant questions or make hurtful comments. While we’re becoming more aware and hopefully sensitive, this area needs to be addressed by HR and department managers. Like any major social transition, it will take time. But three cheers to Bloomberg for helping to remind us of how our actions and words – however innocent – can be hurtful to those who are changing genders. It is that person’s choice, and it should be respected in the workplace.
