Hey everyone 👋
International Transgender Day of Visibility is here and we want to take a moment to appreciate and celebrate the contributions and struggles of transgender individuals. We value diversity and inclusivity, which means it’s important for us to recognize the experiences of all members of our community. 🌈
It’s also important that we create an environment free from discrimination or harassment based on gender identity or expression – so if anyone has any concerns about that, please don’t hesitate to reach out to HR or a supervisor for help. 🤝
Let’s show our support and solidarity with the transgender community today and every day! 💪 Here are just a few ideas: Attend a march, donate money to an organization, wear something purple (the color of visibility), read books written by transgender authors, or participate in online discussions. We can also take a look at what’s going on in our own lives and communities, such as making sure that everyone has access to gender-affirming healthcare.
We hope you join us in recognizing International Transgender Day of Visibility – after all, everyone deserves to be seen and celebrated for who they are! 💖
Thank you! 🙏

International Transgender Day of Visibility (TDOV) is observed annually on March 31st and serves as a day to celebrate the accomplishments and victories of the transgender community while raising awareness of the ongoing discrimination faced by trans people around the world.
Companies can demonstrate their commitment to creating a more inclusive workplace for all employees, regardless of gender identity or expression, by celebrating TDOV in the office. One simple way to commemorate TDOV is to recognize it with a celebratory announcement. The announcement should include details about why the company values trans employees and what it means to have an inclusive workplace. Additionally, companies can encourage employees who identify as transgender or non-binary to share their stories in order to raise visibility on this important day. Some companies may also choose to host special events in honor of TDOV. For example, employers could provide lunch for their staff and launch an educational discussion about gender identity, pronouns, and terminology that is respectful and appropriate when talking about gender diversity.
This would create an open dialogue where employees can learn from one another and become better allies for those who identify as transgender or non-binary within their organization. In order to make sure that commemorations are meaningful and lasting throughout the year, many companies are now incorporating specific initiatives that ensure respect, safety, and inclusion for all trans individuals in the workplace. These initiatives could include providing additional healthcare coverage for medical treatments related to transitioning or hormone replacement therapy; offering anti-discrimination protections such as prohibiting bias against trans people in hiring practices; creating gender neutral restrooms; making sure employee benefits packages are equitable regardless of gender identity; providing training sessions that educate all personnel on what it means to be transgender; supporting LGBTQ+ organizations through donations or volunteer programs; or creating Employee Resource Groups which focus specifically on LGBTQ+ issues like Trans Awareness Week.
Overall, recognizing International Transgender Day of Visibility is a great way for companies to show support for both current and potential employees that identify as trans or non-binary. Through these efforts employers can foster an environment where everyone feels respected while promoting an overall sense of belonging within their organization.
