Mainstreaming Trans Employees: Guidelines for Corporate India

 | 
12/30/2018

On Monday, December 18, the Lok Sabha passed the problematic Transgender Persons (Protection of Rights) Bill, 2016, ignoring 27 recommended amendments from activists, trans community members and allies. One of the more troubling aspects of the Bill is that it attacks the trans communities right to livelihood by criminalising begging – a common way of earning a living for many in the community – and failing to provide alternative employment options. Tackling the topic of trans exclusion from sustainable employment is Godrej India Culture Lab’s (GICL) ‘Manifesto for Trans Inclusion in the Indian Workplace’ in collaboration with TWEET Foundation, Periferry, Community Business, The Humsafar Trust and Keshav Suri Foundation.
