What happens when a fundamental, powerfully suppressed truth is finally spoken out loud? Join us for this ongoing series exploring LGBTQ+ identity.\r\n\r\nFor transgender and transsexual individuals, transitioning in the workplace presents its own unique set of challenges. We will discuss terminology, roles and responsibilities of the transitioning individual, workplace culture, and the importance of supportive friends or family members. This piece of the transition process is significant both for the long-term success and health of the individual in and outside of work and for the organization and its workforce.\r\n\r\nGenerously underwritten by Debbie Wernet.\r\n\r\n------\r\n\r\nBarbra McCoy Getz, LCSW, works as a psychotherapist in private practice, specializing in helping women and transgender clients.
