I don’t normally post about work stuff on here, mostly because we have a blog at work, but I’ve found myself thinking I should at least do a quick blurb here for several months, so here goes.
“Transgender Inclusion in the Workplace, 2nd Edition” is the culmination of my years of work at the Workplace Project of the Human Rights Campaign Foundation. The person who wrote the first edition is actually the person to whom I owe thanks for helping me get this job in the first place, Catherine Sheehy. In many ways, I stand on her shoulders in terms of knowledge, commitment and passion for workplace equality, transgender issues, and employers as change agents. But this second edition represents years of my own work and effort to put pen to paper (so to speak) in a way to help communicate these issues to broader audiences in a clear and effective manner. Well, at least it’s the best that I can do. And I’m honored that Dr. Jillian Todd Weiss, a transgender workplace advocate, has reviewed the publication on her blog.
The aspect of this edition that most excites me is that it’s all integrated into our website and is constantly updated (not Wiki-style, but as close as I can get!). I’m working on my third set of updates over the next month. And this work continues to challenge me in creating new and thoughtful presentations to get the message of workplace equality out to new and broader audiences — look for more postings on this from me, soon.
Please take a look, if you’re so inclined!
I should add that, although it’s already November 9, my friend Addie has challenged me to National Blog Posting Month. The great thing about challenges in general is that they at least get you thinking. I don’t know if I really have something useful to share every day, but I’m thinking about it!
