World-first publication: Employers’ guide to intersex inclusion

Pride in Diversity and OII Australia have joined efforts to publish an Employers’ guide to intersex inclusion, now available online.

The guide presents information about intersex for employers, including:

  • an introduction to intersex
  • intersex bodies, identities, and inclusive language
  • disclosure, medical issues in the workplace, and travel
  • protections related to “intersex status” in Commonwealth law
  • information for diversity and inclusion professionals
  • top 10 ways to be an intersex ally
  • information for parents of intersex children
  • additional information and a glossary of terms.

The guide is specifically written for those working in human resources, diversity and network leadership roles but has a broader reach in educating people on some of the shared and unique workplace experiences of intersex employees.

Pride in Diversity is Australia’s first and only not-for-profit workplace program designed specifically to assist Australian employers with the inclusion of LGBTI employees.

OII Australia is a national Public Benevolent Institution by and for intersex people.
