European Transgender Participation Symposium (25 & 26 October 2012)

October 3rd 2012
Transgender Network Netherlands will organise the 1st European Transgender Participation Symposium which will focus on transgender people in the workplace and will include speakers and participants from across Europe.

Themes of the Symposium will include:

- European legal environment for transgender people
- Practical tips about better positioning of transgender people in the workplace
- Creating a ‘game plan’ for greater acceptance of transgender people in the workplace

The organisers state that "International research shows that transgender people are often unemployed or under-employed and socially isolated. Yet a 14-year study in the Netherlands shows that 42% of transgender people have a higher education as compared to 25% of the general working population. Why the discrepancy? What can be done to better integrate transgender people into the working world and what is the unique quality that so many transgender people bring to the workplace?"

To read more about these questions, as well as find out more information about the event, read a preview of the program and register, please see the events website at www.etp-symposium.eu.
