TD Bank, Pride at Work Canada / Fierté au travail Canada and the 519, Canada’s largest LGBTQ community centre, will facilitate a practical workshop exploring the Creating Authentic Spaces toolkit and why a trans-inclusive workplace benefits all your employees and customers.
Participants will review best-practice steps to implementing policies and practices that are inclusive of diverse gender identities and gender expressions. The session will highlight how this Canadian toolkit can support efforts nationally. The toolkit, pullout job-aids, and workshop explore:
  • Gender Specific and Gender Neutral Pronouns;
  • Being an Effective Trans Ally;
  • Supporting Employees in Transition;
  • Washrooms and Change Rooms;
  • and Creating a Welcoming Environment.
This session will appeal to those who are thinking of implementing change through to those who are more advanced in the process.
