Most HR systems still collect gender in a binary fashion, listing employees as either women or men. Yet, we know that a growing number of younger professionals entering the workplace – as many as 30% - identify as a gender beyond the binary. Outdated methods of collecting gender in the workplace erase the experiences and needs of transgender and nonbinary workers. We know that when organizations commit to building gender inclusive organizations, they need data to measure their progress, and yet very few employers know how to accurately measure these employees. Fortunately, demographic questions on how to ask gender identity and gender expression are now being used on federal and state population-based surveys. This session will help HR professionals adapt these data collection methods for their own organizations, and by doing so, they will be better positioned to compete for the next generation of talent.
