Trans* & Nonbinary Lending Library -Gender Ambiguity in the Workplace by Alison Ash Fogarty (she/her) and Lily Zheng (she/her) book cover

For leaders seeking best practices related to workplace transition, hiring practices, inclusive workplace culture, bathroom access and more, this book offers guidance and novel policy recommendations designed to ensure the success of transgender employees.

Extending the existing theoretical literature on masculinity in the workplace, gender discrimination, and gender performance, the book introduces the new concept of “doing ambiguity.” It contains original research complemented by humanizing narratives from transgender people that provide insights into rarely explored non-binary, gender-fluid, and genderless experiences. In addition, it identifies factors that may preclude and minimize discrimination, including strategies pursued by transgender people at the individual level as well as policies employed at the organization level, and outlines a pragmatic set of policy recommendations for employers, community leaders, and others looking to help transgender people thrive in organizational environments.
