Cooper, Carlozzi to present national webinar on gender transition
Sandy Cooper, OSU in Tulsa Human Resources director, and Dr. Al Carlozzi, OSU-Tulsa professor of counseling psychology, will present a national webinar on transgender issues in the workplace for college and university human resources professionals next week.
The College and University Professional Administrators of Human Resources and the National Association of Diversity Officers in Higher Education are offering the webinar, "The Transgender Transition in the Workplace," to offer guidance and resources to assist colleges and universities with employees who are undergoing gender transition.
The webinar will focus on diversity training in this emerging area, dispelling common misconceptions of gender transitions, describing steps universities can take before, during and after an employee's transition, and discussing legal issues and public relations situations that may arise.
Cooper and Carlozzi authored an article on gender transition for CUPA-HR last year and presented on gender transition issues in the workplace at state and regional human resources conferences earlier this year.
