It is currently estimated that up to 40% of trans people identify as non-binary, meaning they do not identify as either male or female. While acceptance of trans individuals is improving, both in legislative and cultural spheres, non-binary individuals face particular challenges in the workplace that are unique from other LGBTQ employees.
Promoting non-binary inclusion and understanding across your business benefits both employees and employers. The proactive implementation of sensitivity practices in the workplace can combat ignorance and aggression, moving not just businesses but society as a whole towards fully accepting non-binary and gender non-conforming individuals.
