Meeting including Transgender Workers

Status of this site

The Transgender at Work web site was founded in 1997. It is no longer being actively maintained, and is out of date. It is being kept up as a resource and for historical purposes.

Transgender at Work

The Transgender at Work (TAW) project is a focal point for addressing workplace issues for the transgender. TAW provides resources for innovative employers who want to set their company employment policies to help their transgender employees to be at their most productive, without spending energy hiding an important part of themselves and pretending to be something they are not.

Transgender at Work (TAW) focuses on voluntary cooperation between employers and employees. While civil rights laws are important to understand, and provide useful examples of language, advocacy for laws is outside the scope of TAW.
