Transformation in the Workplace is our Chamber's way of celebrating the Transgender Day of Visibility. It is an opportunity for Chamber businesses, their employee representatives, and community members to come together for a day of learning and awareness of the Transgender and Gender Non-Binary community.
Thursday, March 9th, 2023, 12:00 pm - 5:00 pm at the Kansas City Club
The day will begin at noon with training focused on teaching business leaders and employees how to create a better and inclusive, equitable, and affirming work environment for gender-diverse employees and co-workers. Registrants will have the opportunity to sign up for specific training classes.
Training is open to non-members for a fee and is free for Chamber members and their representatives.
The day will also contain two panels with community leaders. One panel will consist of Transgender and Gender Non-Binary employees and community members sharing their workplace experiences and what they need to be the best employee possible for their employers. Another panel will focus on how to support your gender diverse loved one on their journey toward their authentic self.
Local organizations will exhibit their resources focusing on the transgender and gender non-binary communities. This year businesses will also have the opportunity to host booths where they can discuss employment opportunities with community members. The fair is open to everyone. We encourage gender-diverse community members, families, friends, and business allies to attend.
We will end the day with a reception. We invite affinity group members, business owners, and community members to stay, relax, and network. The reception is free for Chamber members and the public for a small fee. Pre-registration is required.
Transgender Day of Visibility (TDOV) is an international event on March 31 dedicated to recognizing the resilience and accomplishments of the transgender community. The day celebrates Transgender and Gender Non-Binary (TGNB) individuals. It raises awareness about the transgender and gender non-binary community, their struggles, and what allies can do to eliminate the barriers this community faces.
