What does “gender
identity” mean? (p.1)
n   “Gender identity” is broadly defined by the
    Guidelines as “gendered identification, self-
    expression and appearance” corresponding
    to a deeply-felt psychological identification
    as male or female.
n   Gender identity may or may not correspond
    to a person’s sex assigned at birth.
n   Employees may not be subject to
    discrimination or harassment based on
    gender identity.
What does “gender
transition” mean? (p.2)
n   “Gender transition” refers to transition from
    male to female, or from female to male.
n   Those who transition feel strongly and
    persistently that their gender identity is
    different from their sex at birth, and wish to
    transition from one gender to the other.
n   This transition often takes a year or more.
Is this the same as
“Transsexual”? (p.2)
n   This medical term refers to one who desires
    to have sex reassignment surgery
    (sometimes called gender confirmation
    surgery). Its meaning is subject to debate
n   The recent term “transgender” is a broader
    term encompassing all gender variance
n   The Company/Agency’s guidelines do not
    use the terms transsexual or transgender.
