Overview

Discover the realities for transgender people in the workplace and beyond as they move through any of the three recognized kinds of transition—and how to be an ally.

In Transgender Inclusion: All The Things You Want To Ask Your Transgender Coworker But Shouldn’t, clinical psychologist and trans inclusion specialist Dr. A.C. Fowlkes delivers an essential and remarkably honest discussion of the realities of the workplace for transgender people. In the book, you’ll explore the experiences that trans people have in the workplace as they move through none, one, or more of the three recognized kinds of transition—medical, social, and legal. You’ll learn answers to your questions about your transgender colleagues, so you can be respectful of your coworker’s feelings and work together comfortably. You’ll also find:

  • Discussions of how and why transgender people often feel excluded from the workplace and by their colleagues
  • Explorations of the unfortunately common reality of harassment and maltreatment of transgender workers
  • How and why information about transgender experiences in the workplace is helpful to everyone


Approximately 1.3 million adults in the United States identify as transgender. If you don’t already have a transgender friend, neighbor, or co-worker, you might very well have one in the future. A practical, compassionate, and evidence-based discussion of the transgender experience, Transgender Inclusion is a must-read guide for managers, executives, professionals, and allies who want to learn more and do more about trans issues in the workplace.

With a foreword by Peggy Rajski, Founder of the Trevor Project.
