To celebrate and honor Transgender Day of Remembrance, EQUAL! invited Ryan Sallans to talk about the issues faced by Transgender Employees in corporate environments, and how allies can support these employees through their transition—and beyond. As the transgender community becomes more visible in the media and in our daily lives it becomes increasingly important for all people to have a better understanding of the challenges transgender individuals face and the support that can be given to them.

Ryan is an international LGBT educator, consultant, publisher and author of the book Second Son: Transitioning Toward My Destiny, Love and Life.

This event was organised by EQUAL!, and made possible thanks to a generous participation from Alcatel-Lucent.
