Currently fewer than 800 colleges and universities and even fewer Fortune 500 companies protect transgender students, faculty, staff, alumni, and visitors in their non-discrimination policies, yet more and more people are coming forward with trans or gender variant identities that directly challenge existing policies, procedures, and services.
As we become comfortable with the Lesbian and Gay plight on our college campuses and in the workplace, we continue to overlook Bisexuals and silence Transgender populations. Trans folks are courageously coming forward and identifying as such more and more often. This Resource Guide is designed for college human resource administrators to strategically plan to provide a safe and supportive climate for all and to prepare participants to become better advocates for the trans community. Be a leader by identifying the needs (including invisible populations), advocating effectively for trans people, and empowering all community members to take action.
This packet includes answer sheets, questions, lists, articles, and other resources for almost every stage of this journey to full inclusion and is often updated.

“I used the facing trans packet. We have used it for various purposes. I usually facilitate a sex/gender/sexual orientation triangle meeting each year, we use the terms word search for an ice breaker, and we use the history in the opening slide show for the annual WSU drag show. It's been a very helpful resource.” –Brad Thomison
