Written from the author's own experience of transitioning within a major US corporation, this book prepares transgender people with everything they need to know to successfully transition in the workplace. The first guide of its kind, it offers all the practical advice and support trans people need to be able to balance their career ambitions with their personal needs.
Many businesses lack specific trans-inclusive HR strategies - this guide fills the gap with tools, resources and an easy-to-read breakdown of all the relevant laws and policies. It covers everything from how to come out to colleagues and clients and realistic medical timetables, to introducing a new professional name and creating a workplace support system. This is a must-read guide for every trans person preparing to transition, as well as for managers and HR professionals wishing to support their employees.
“Businesses are improved by actively recruiting and supporting LGBT employees and executives, but we still have a long way to go before we have a truly inclusive workforce. In Transitioning in the Workplace, Dana Pizzuti offers the roadmap that employees and their corporations need in order to get down to the important work of ensuring that everyone—no matter how they identify—achieves equality at work. Both moving and practical.”—Erin Uritus, CEO, Out & Equal Workplace Advocates
