Companies and Corporations
How does your company support an employee through their gender transition in a way that avoids lawsuits, enhances team operations, and provides a platform to retain and recruit the best talent?
How does your corporation help employees understand and feel comfortable with transgender and non-binary colleagues, clients and customers, to avoid negative publicity and improve sales and services?
We provide clients with the training, consultations, keynotes and executive coaching necessary to ensure you are fully equipped to work effectively with transgender and non-binary people, both in the office and in the marketplace.

What others are saying
I had the pleasure of hosting Gabrielle and Linda as guest speakers for a Toronto Diversity & Inclusion event: “Understanding Transgender Colleagues and Clients”. The material was organized, thoughtfully constructed for all audience members and well managed for the time allotted. More importantly however, through the sharing of Gabrielle’s courageous personal story, this team reached our audience on a human / emotional level while being sensitive to our corporate environment. I highly recommend Transformation Journeys for companies seeking to grow and develop awareness of Transgender people, many of whom are employees, clients, or friends and family members of our employees.

When Gabrielle and Linda present, the overriding feeling is that you are in capable hands. The obvious depth and breadth of their knowledge, specifically around the realities and challenges that face transgender individuals, their colleagues, and their clients, allows for an outstanding educational experience. For me, though, it is Gabrielle's willingness and ability to share her own story that elevates the experience from educational to transformational.
