Dr Mira Fey finds that the vast majority of international organisations do not provide adequate employment rights for gender-diverse workers. From an overall lack of awareness among co-workers, supervisors, and senior management over binary human resources (HR) forms and IT systems to almost no gender-neutral toilets, gender-diverse workers report a range of negative day-to-day experiences.
Aditya Bharadwaj, Co-Director of the Gender Centre will be moderating the debate together with the Queer International Studies Assembly (QISA).
This event is organised jointly by the Gender Centre and the Gender, Diversity and Inclusion Initiative at the Geneva Graduate Institute.
