With the transgender community driving some of the leading innovations in tech – and with tech playing a critical role in many transgender people’s lives and journeys – why aren’t transgender people better represented and supported in the industry?
Transform Tech, a day-long summit presented by Transgender Law Center and hosted by Salesforce, will address this question and more.
Transform Tech builds on the legacy of Transgender Law Center’s experience and wealth of knowledge with our corporate partners through policy development, implementation, and trainings. Transform Tech invites TGNC people and their allies who are currently working in the business and/or technology fields as well as companies and organizations that wish to develop more opportunities for TGNC people.
Last year’s summit was an overwhelming success. In collaboration with Salesforce and Lesbians Who Tech, the 2017 summit engaged TGNC people, advocates, and experts in a multi-format, day-long event and produced over 200 attendees! This year, we will continue to deepen and form meaningful, reciprocal relationships with tech and business partners to better address the inclusion of TGNC as potential employees and clients.
This work continues Transgender Law Center’s commitment to public education and the visible support of our corporate partners towards justice and equality. Transform Tech will continue to develop, in concert with our partners, best practices and model policies to work towards meaningful diversity and inclusion.
