TRANSGENDER WORKPLACE DIVERSITY | SPEAKER | PSYCHOTHERAPIST | HUMAN RESOURCE CONSULTANT | MINISTER
Transgender inclusion for improved productivity: Let it shine.

Pronouns, while important in a transgender-inclusive environment, only begin the journey to highly-effective workplace diversity. The bar chart illustrates the challenge.
Even within the LGBT community, a vast majority feel they don’t have a lot in common with transgender people. Room for improvement? Certainly. That's true for everyone and presents organizations with a big unclaimed opportunity to advance and foster teamwork.

Human resource professionals and managers endeavoring to create an inclusive workplace will benefit from a transgender specialist. Erin Swenson's non-anxious presence can transform conflict into productive outcomes. She will help:

  • Develop guidelines for employee education and training.
  • Assist and counsel transgender employees who have decided
    to transition.
  • Implement a holistic approach
    to respect and support both
    transgender workers and
    their coworkers.
  • Reconcile misunderstandings to
    strengthen positive interactions.
  • Encourage a productive dialogue
    to improve understanding.
  • Empower managers and employees
    with knowledge to overcome
    negative stereotypes.
  • Give workers facts and tools
    to inspire a cooperative workplace.
  • Communicate inclusive policies to prevent misconceptions among your workforce.
  • Build an inclusive reputation to attract job candidates who excel in their
    occupational fields.

Are you looking for a professional whose non-anxious presence will help make your organization inclusive? Add Erin to your team. Yours will become a workplace where transgender employees flourish and grow. To schedule a consultation, workshop, or speaking engagement, contact Erin Swenson.

A remarkable journey: Erin will bring your organization the skills learned as she negotiated
her own gender transition before the Presbyterian Church, USA. In 1996, Erin became the first-known mainstream minister to remain ordained following her transition from male to female, an achievement that required
her skills as both a seasoned psychotherapist and an educator. Her competence became more refined after entering the secular workforce and, as an openly transgender counselor and supervisor, she is able to use her unique insights in her associate training. Read Erin's bio for more accomplishments.
