EU Platform of Diversity Charters workshop / Supporting trans and intersex inclusion in the workplace
2021-05-20 @ 10:30 - 12:00
Discrimination against LGBTIQ people persists throughout the EU. For several LGBTIQ people in the EU, it is still unsafe to show affection publicly, to be open about their sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and sex characteristics (be it at home or at work), to simply be themselves without feeling to be threatened.
This is especially true in the case of trans and intersex people. According to the European Commission’s newest study ‘Legal gender recognition in the EU: The journeys of trans people towards full equality,’ trans people experience lower employment rates, greater levels of economic inactivity and higher unemployment rates than the general population. For instance, according to the FRA LGBTI survey (2019), all groups in the trans population have personally felt discriminated against when looking for a job because of their identity, particularly trans women (19%) and trans men (15%).
Given these statistics, it is more important than ever to educate yourself and your employees to change attitudes in workplaces. Where to start? How can you support your trans and intersex employees in the workplace? These and other questions will be answered at this 90-minute workshop.
