Module 6: 2SLGBTQIA+ and Transgender Inclusion

EDI In Practice

This interactive scenario uses a series of videos and multiple-choice questions to enable you to apply your knowledge about transgender inclusion safely and with low risk. In this activity, you will have the opportunity to view a snapshot of an interaction involving a transgender employee named Bek. You will be presented with a situation that Bek encounters and options on which choices you think they should make, as well as questions about the situation in general. As you make your selections, you will be able to gain insight into the impact of your choices on this real-life situation that may arise in the workplace.

Please take a few minutes to go through the scenario below. After you have completed the activity, please review and reflect upon the questions that follow.



Discussion Questions

Discussion questions from the scenario include:

  • Beyond supporting the person at the moment, what are some other ways you can be an ally to this individual in the workplace?
  • Why do you think the other individual felt uncomfortable using Bek’s pronouns and how could you help them learn more about the value of pronouns?
  • What are ways the organization can create a more supportive and inclusive environment for transgender people?
