Please join us for a timely event to examine what it means to be transgender in America at a time when the transgender community faces various societal pressures, including so-called bathroom and religious freedom bills in a country where transgender people have legal rights in just 18 states and Washington, D.C.

Author, lawyer, diversity/compassionate inclusion consultant and national speaker, Ellen (Ellie) Krug will lead off a special late afternoon talk and panel event at our New York office on the eve of Transgender Day of Remembrance. Ellie’s presentation will be followed by a panel of notable speakers who will discuss various transgender-related topics as they relate to transgender inclusion in the workplace. This event will be particularly enlightening for employers and organizations that are trying to “get it right” relative to transgender and gender variant team members, customers, and prospective employees.
