Career development of transgender and gender diverse people

Research output: Contribution to conference (non-published works)Posterpeer-review


Career coaching an individual of a marginalised group is a balancing act between specific considerations for the group and individual as well as the avoidance of othering through alienation. I am researching the work experiences and career development of transgender and gender diverse (TGD) individuals in Australia. The bottom line is that most TGD individuals want to contribute to society, be included in an engaging workplace, and thrive in a profession or occupation that speaks to their skills, interests, and passions. Unfortunately, social norms like cis-normative gender binarism and systemic or organisational structures hinder TGD people from pursuing their career aspirations or even gaining employment.
