    Most companies of any size will encounter a transgender person at some point, either through current or new customers, and/or new, or existing employees. Providing culturally competent policies, services, and practices will increase your customer base and customer loyalty as well as a build a more confident customer service team. This workshop breaks down barriers between transgender and non-transgender people by encouraging participants to reflect on how gender roles in society affect their own experiences in the workplace.  This training encompasses collaborative learning by using case studies and role-play methods, providing cultural information, skills building, and problem solving techniques for working with transgender customers.
