Trans and Transition in the Workplace: A Webinar and Discussion

Thursday, November 14, 2013
2:45 - 4:15 p.m.
Genrich-Rusling Room, LeChase Hall
Light refreshments will be provided.

Transgender transition is being talked about like never before. The topic has recently hit the mainstream media - from Chaz Bono's transition from female to male, to court cases determining rights of transgender people in the military. And college campuses are frequently at the center of local news stories regarding dormitory assignments, bathroom usage and health insurance coverage.

If an employee approached you and said "I am a trans person and am in the process of transition," would you know what to do? What steps should your university take before, during and after the transition? What resources are available? What are the legal issues? Can we use this opportunity to further increase awareness and inclusion on our campuses? Discuss these questions and more during this webinar presented in collaboration with the College and University Professional Association for Human Resources (CUPA-HR).

The discussion will address the danger of labeling people—transgender versus transsexual—along with issues raised in the webinar. The event is sponsored by the Warner School of Education and the Susan B. Anthony Center for Women's Leadership.

For additional information, please contact Nancy Ares, associate professor, at (585) 273-5957 or nares@warner.rochester.edu.
