The work environment may become quite critical for transgender people at every stage, from actually getting a job to working conditions to termination of the contract (e.g., dismissal or resignation). Transgender people remain mostly marginalized and excluded from the world of work. An effective protection against this grave inequity would be to include gender identity among the characteristics that render a person “disadvantaged” and at risk of discrimination, and to guarantee them support when in training or at work. Another step should be to create an environment that is inclusive and respectful of diversity. Think of actions that can mitigate the discomfort of those who are on the path of gender affirmation, for instance, the possibility of using their name of choice both on the ID badge and on internal documents.
