One of the leading pioneers in transgender issues in the workplace, Denise Norris, comes to my Internet radio show, Stonewall Live! on Thursday, March 22nd, 9PM EST. In 1993 she co-founded and organization, The Transexual Menace as a means of applying for Transgender Inclusion in what was yet to become the GLBT community. In addition to initiating actions against individuals and organizations whose policies and/or opinions are discriminatory to the Transgender community, it sponsors outreach and educational events for the LGBY and non-LGBT communities.
As an analyst with Accenture, with the Global Transgender Inclusion Project, she has ensured that the company includes sexual orientation, gender identity and gender expression in their non-discrimination policy.
On Friday, March 30, 2012 from 6-8PM Ms. Norris will be honored by The Stonewall National Museum & Archives with The Spirit of Stonewall Award as part of its celebration of Transgender History and Culture. The Stonewall is located at 1300 East Sunrise Blvd, Fort Lauderdale, FL and the event is free and open to the public.
