]It is increasingly common for transgender workers to undergo gender transition while keeping their jobs. Not everyone in the workplace adapts easily to this change, however. The Center for Gender Sanity was founded 15 years ago to help organizations manage gender transitions. We have assisted small businesses, Fortune 500 companies, state and local governments, police and fire departments, schools and churches. In this program we'll talk about some of the more common obstacles to smooth gender transition in the workplace and how they can be resolved.
