New study reveals 32 percent of trans employees have suffered workplace discrimination

Workplace Discrimination – When someone decides to reveal their gender identity at work it is a profoundly personal decision and one that can have a lasting impact on the individual’s entire career. Many from the LGBTQIA+ community simply don’t want to be out at work – estimated to be 46%. It’s not getting any better for trans people. In 2016 52% of trans people didn’t reveal their gender identity. In 2021 the number is 65%. In 2016 32% said they experienced workplace discrimination. In 2021 that is down to 25%. So there has been some improvement over the last 5 years. However, 32% of trans workers have said they have experienced discrimination or harassment at work during the past 5 years.
