Building Bridges: Supporting Transition in the Workplace

Seeking International LGBTQ2+ Access to Justice

Friday June 19, 2020 | Original Broadcast

The Thomson Reuters Institute is proud to announce the seventh installment in an eight-part series of thought leadership webinars devoted to advancing international LGBTQ2+ access to justice.

Canadian employers have a duty to accommodate employees who seek to transition in the workplace, but the vast majority have no plan in place to provide such support. Without established guidelines for staff to follow, employers fall short of their legal obligations and miss out on opportunities to support some of the most marginalized members of the LGBTQ2+ community. This session will focus on why the unique needs of each trans employee must guide every transition process and explore the business, legal and moral cases for trans inclusion in the workplace.
