Chapter 32: Trans-ferring in the workplace
The chapter provides an overview of some of the most pressing issues faced by trans individuals that constitute barriers not only in the workplace, but also in society at large. Generally, it is not safe to be a transsexual. Across the global workplace, some fundamental steps are missing that could assist trans individuals to transition in the workplace, including increased awareness-raising, understanding of the complexities for workers transitioning, and non-discriminatory policies and practices. These barriers must be addressed before we can talk in terms of true transformative change that creates a work environment that not only allows trans workers to be themselves during working hours, but also permits them the same promotion opportunities and career progression as others.
