 About the Webinar:

The current narrative with regard to the workplace issues of transgender and gender non-conforming individuals has tended to focus on the events and preparations leading up to the time of transition itself. This lively and engaging session evolves the conversation beyond this stage and covers an area that up to now has not been discussed—the post-transition (and beyond) story. A major international voice in the workplace equality movement for transgender and gender non-conforming individuals, the presenter throws open the shutters of this darkened room and casts a bright light on the pertinent issues that diversity & inclusion and human resource professionals need to know to successfully transform their workplaces into a truly welcoming environment for ALL of their employees.

 In the search for diverse leadership, most organizations ignore one of their greatest assets: the largely untapped pool of “natural” (informal) and potential leaders who exist at all levels of the organization. In this highly interactive workshop, participants will be introduced to a framework and practical tips for intentionally nurturing and developing diverse leadership among those they supervise and teach, while simultaneously furthering their organization’s mission, goals and work. Supervisors will strengthen their ability to better fulfill their staff development responsibilities and help the college intentionally develop and retain motivated employees at all levels. Faculty will strengthen their ability to develop their students’ leadership skills in addition to their content knowledge. While designed for supervisors and faculty members, this workshop is open to all employees interested in the topics covered.

You may not hear a lot about adult bullying, but according to the Workplace Bullying Institute, up to a third of workers may be the victims of workplace bullying. About twenty percent of workplace bullying crosses the line into harassment. Workplace bullying refers to the repeated, health-impairing, mistreatment of a target, driven by the perpetrators need to control. Allowed to continue this behavior undermines legitimate business interests, lowers morale, and impacts the overall ability “to get work done.” Workplace bullying can make life quite miserable and difficult. Supervisors should especially be made aware of workplace bullies, since they can disrupt productivity and create a hostile work environment which can lead to legal ramifications.
