Out & Equal Workplace Advocates, a non-profit dedicated to achieving lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender workplace equality, will debut its Workplace Gender Identity and Transition Guidelines at the organization’s annual Workplace Summit. The summit, to be held October 5-8, 2015, in Dallas, Texas, will feature over 3,000 attendees representing more than 600 of the Fortune 1000 companies from 31 countries with discussion on advances in LGBT workplace equality, including the Workplace Gender Identity and Transition Guidelines.

“There are great disparities in workplace equality that disproportionately affect the transgender community. The Workplace Gender Identity and Transition Guidelines emerged from overwhelming requests from our corporate partners asking how to best support their transgender and gender-diverse employees.”
