Diversity Beyond the Checkbox

How to Create a Transgender and Non-Binary Inclusive Culture, with Jake Rostovsky

Podcasts Feb 16, 2021

In our DEI work, employers say they don’t have access to or experience with people from the transgender community – so they simply avoid conversations as to not offend. But in doing so, it makes people feel excluded and unwelcome. So what should companies do? We asked trans advocate Jake Rostovsky.

In addition to the workplace conversation, Jackie and Jake talk about suicide rates among LGBTQ+ teens, how trans characters are (and should be) portrayed in TV/film, and what questions a trans person should ask when interviewing a therapist.
