 Trans Etiquette for Non-Trans People

Please join a discussion with Kaydee Helm!  Transgender employees are in every industry and every profession, whether you realize it or not.  As our national conversation has recently opened to the topic, and more people are beginning gender transition openly, non-transgender (known as cisgender) employees often don't know how to interact with their trans colleagues.  They are unfamiliar with terminology associated with being transgender and are unsure of how to be culturally sensitive on the topic.  This informal discussion, moderated by Eliana Morrison, a local Human Rights Campaign Steering Committee member, will provide terminology, information, and tips to help non-transgender people support their trans colleagues.  Hint: Transgender etiquette is the same as the good manners you already know.

Successful Contractor Audit in light of OFCCP's Strategies and New Regs

Contractors’ employment practices have increasingly become a target for this Administration. Backed by a flurry of new Executive Orders, a directive from President Obama to attack workplace inequality, and armed with an expanded information request, OFCCP is looking for bigger systemic cases of non-compliance and discrimination.

Contractors need to be proactive in how they defend themselves and how they respond to increasingly aggressive OFCCP audits.

Gary Siniscalco, a former Regional Counsel for EEOC, has advised contractors in hundreds of successful audits and will share some of his insights, strategies and practical tips.
