GB-6502 Transgender Inclusion at Work 3 credits

The focus of this course is an investigation and study of the issues surrounding the transgender population in the workplace. The course includes an examination of the need for support during the transitioning process as well as the need to change corporate culture for those who have transitioned as well as those who identify as transgender but do not intend on transitioning. This course is designed to help students understand the information about the transgender population and the data that has been collected about the lack of equality for transgender individuals. The course will focus on various organizations and campaigns who are involved, directly and indirectly, in making the workplace inclusive to the transgender population. A variety of experiences relating to transgender issues at work and in society will also be analyzed.
