Equal opportunity in the workplace is also one of our primary concerns at Trans* Success. Directly from their website IBM had the following to state about their policies:
Business activities such as hiring, training, compensation, promotions, transfers, terminations and IBM-sponsored social and recreational activities are conducted without discrimination based on race, color, genetics, religion, gender, gender identity or expression, sexual orientation, national origin, disability, age or status as a special disabled veteran or other veteran covered by the Vietnam Era Veterans Readjustment Act of 1974, as amended. In respecting and valuing the diversity among our employees and all those with whom we do business, managers are expected to ensure that there is a work environment free of all forms of discrimination and harassment.
The Advocate ran a story October 2011 talking about the fact that “In addition to offering coverage for gender-reassignment surgery, IBM created a webcast on the topic of gender identity and expression that features transgender workers talking about their experiences and answering questions from other employees. The webcast is available to all IBM employees worldwide,” says IBM executive Silvy Vluggen. Click the photo above to be taken to IBM’s diversity website.
