For many transgender and non-binary people, the workplace is one of the biggest obstacles to their transition. Finding the support in their professional sphere to embrace their true and authentic selves can be life changing. Technology companies and startups today are an amazing home for trans people - because their forward thinking approach to changing the world makes them a welcoming place for people who are not always accepted elsewhere. This is why I have created an open source transgender inclusion policy for Aussie startups, to encourage founders, VCs and employees to make trans inclusion scalable. Any questions? Want me to talk to your team about transgender rights and workers? Want to ask me how to implement this policy? Joan@joanwestenberg.com
