The JLP recognizes Trans Day of Remembrance
The JLP recognizes Trans Day of Remembrance, a day to remember trans folk across the world lost to violence. Throughout North America and beyond, trans people, gender-diverse and non-binary people continue to experience violence, hatred and discrimination in communities and in workplaces.
Transgender Day of Remembrance aims to raise public awareness of hate crimes against transgender people, to publicly mourn and honor the lives of those lost who might otherwise be forgotten, and to invite allies to stand with the trans community in vigil.
Gender-diverse public-service employees are still more likely than most to have experienced harassment in the workplace. According to the 2019 Public Service Employee Survey (PSES), almost a third of employees who identified as gender-diverse (29%) reported being harassed or discriminated against in the previous two years. In addition, they report lower levels of satisfaction at work and, feeling less valued and less respected.
The Joint Learning Program is committed to promoting respectful and healthy workplaces, exempt of transphobia and all forms of discrimination and harassment.
