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." - Reference & Research Book News

This is simply a wonderful book! Wonderfully written, organized, and researched! To be sure, it is chock full of practical guidance and tips for the transgender in transition and her employer. But it is so much more! It is a powerful appeal to empathy, understanding, and justice for transgender people of all sorts. It gives a sense of dignity and hope! One of her important messages is that inclusiveness in the workplace is more than being a good corporate citizen. It is good business. Diversity stimulates creative energy for all employees. And it creates an open atmosphere that sends a positive message that all are valued for what they contribute.
