Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The Complete Guide to Transgender in the Workplace is an awesome resource. It has helpful information for people who are unfamiliar with transgender issues, but it's also a useful tool for those of us who know about transgender issues but want to do more as an ally."

Queercents

"Vanessa Sheridan's comprehensive guide for employers, coworkers, and transgender individuals in the workplace marks an invaluable resource in a field where many gray, confusing areas still exist. 'Transgender' is a concept that frequently is difficult to understand, sometimes even for the transgender individual, so it is both calming and instructive to see it discussed so thoroughly and clearly as Sheridan has done. The book has explanatory chapters on being transgender; what it means for that individual, and for those sharing the same workplace; how to work with and for transgender customers; and what legal protections are currently in place for the transgender worker. It has tools for coming out at work and for organizational leaders."

Lavender Magazine

"Sheridan has been researching, writing and speaking about transgender issues for nearly 20 years, and she has created this practical guide for managers, human resource professionals and policymakers who must deal with the increasing numbers of transgender persons entering the workplace. The author provides a list of effective tools based upon policy

examples from successful organizations that are designed to improve the cultural climate, quality of life and opportunities for these individuals. Appendices include self-quizzes, case studies and a copy of IBM's equal opportunity policy."
