Does your organization affirm transgender Families?
Bring your team together to learn to be inclusive with clarity, COURAGE, and compassion
Tammy Plunkett has a very personal and profound message to share with you:
- Trans kids exist and are not going away
- Trans families need support to support their kids
- You can have a huge impact on their health and happiness today
Do you know how much impact you have on your employees and the people who frequent your organization?
Dare to make your organization a safe space!
According to Business Wire in March 2023:
- 48% of employed adults surveyed said they have helped a loved one live with a mental health challenge in the past year and 80% of caregivers say helping a loved one manage a mental health challenge has impacted their own mental health as a result
- 6-in-10 caregivers say that their work productivity has been impacted
- More than half of surveyed workers have not informed anyone at their company about their caregiving responsibilities
- Three-in-four caregivers wish their employer would offer more benefits focused on mental health
If your employees are caregivers of transgender youth dealing with gender dysphoria or discrimination, you must address their mental health.
Furthermore, according to a new study by The Workforce Institute at UKG which included 3,400 people across 10 countries, 69% of people said their managers had the greatest impact on their mental health, on par with the impact of their partner. And this was more than the impact of their doctor (51%) or therapist (41%). Are your organization’s managers up-to-date on how to affirm transgender families? Consider how much more time people spend with their co-workers compared to their therapists.

From school boards to extracurricular groups to social services providers, if you interact with youth and need to understand the child or the parent and caregiver’s perspective of raising a trans child, I am here to help.
I start with a Gender Welcoming Assessment to understand how you currently work with gender-diverse youth, we review your organization’s work culture, conduct one-on-one interviews with key stakeholders, and review your current policies.
Then offer Staff Training where we work to align our approach with your organization’s values to ensure the seamless integration of inclusive principles using a blend of scientific studies, lived experience and community resources.
And finally, we Consult on Policy, where we develop a strategic direction and workable policies to ensure we help your organization move forward on your gender-affirming journey.
