Despite attempts to address bias and inequity in the workplace, gender inequity continues to be a pressing issue in the legal profession. Current efforts to remedy the gender gap focus almost exclusively on the challenges cisgender (meaning, individuals who identify with the biological sex assigned at birth) women face. Yet research continues to show that transgender and nonbinary people face structural barriers, biases, and discrimination at work because of their gender identity. In this workshop, attendees will learn how gender stereotypes and work structures negatively influence work experiences, practices, and policies, and adopt strategies to foster gender equity.
