Trans Inclusive Career Guide Focus Group

Monday, October 28, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm


The Sexual & Gender Diversity Office (SGDO) is working with Career Exploration and Education (CxED) and a number of U of T career centres in order to create a resource to better support trans and nonbinary students in navigating their careers.

The sections of the guide are based on feedback from preliminary consultation with trans and nonbinary students, staff and faculty.

We are currently looking for trans and nonbinary folks to review the guide to provide feedback and to participate in focus groups. We anticipate reviewing the material will take at least 1 hour and each focus group will be 1.5 hours.

Food and refreshments will be provided. We will also include a contribution note in the guide, thanking all who provided feedback on the drafts, if they want to be named.

If you are interested in joining the focus groups and offering your feedback, please email us at sgdo@utoronto.ca as soon as you can with your preferred focus group date.

  • Wednesday, October 23, 2:30 – 4:00 pm (21 Sussex Avenue, Room 321)
  • Monday, October 28, 5:00 – 6:30 pm (21 Sussex Avenue, Room 415)

Folks who sign-up for a focus group date will receive the documents for review over email.

Are you a U of T alum?

We are also collecting Alumni Stories. We are hoping to gather quotes from trans and nonbinary alumni who may be able to support and inspire students who are thinking about how to navigate the landscape of employment. We are planning to integrate quotes from alumni throughout the resource. You are welcome to remain anonymous or have your name connected with your words – let us know your preference below! Share your stories and/ or advice.
