Trans in the Workplace

Join our panel on Transgender Day of Remembrance to hear from transgender advocates and experts on what they see as the future of allyship and inclusion in the region.

Description

As November is Transgender Awareness Month and in commemoration of Transgender Day of Remembrance (TDoR), we hope to showcase trans activists and employees in Asia. Three speakers will share their lived experience, insights and what TDoR means to them.

  • This panel seeks to showcase transgender inclusion in the workplace and what can be done by companies to better support trans people, both as individuals and as organisations.

For more details, please get in touch with Adrienne Davis.
