She? He? They? Zie? Faer? Do you know what these pronouns signify? What does it mean when someone says they are Cis? Trans? Enby? Agender? Genderqueer? Two Spirit? These words all signify contemporary ways of talking about and living gender identity in the 21st Century. This webinar provides an overview of the complexity of gender identity against the backdrop of anti-discrimination law. Looking at what the law requires, in cases like Bostock v. Clayton County, we will discuss some best practices for addressing gender identity in the workplace. This webinar will prepare you to navigate the new normal beyond binary notions of sex and gender.
