Created by the Task Force for Transgender Inclusion, the Toolkit is intended to prepare institutions, coworkers, and transgender museum professionals for gender transitions and to better implement transgender inclusion in policies and practices.
Institutions are encouraged to maintain copies of A Transitioning Professional’s Guide and A Coworker’s Guide in places where staff can access them discreetly. If you are a professional preparing to transition, provide your institution with An Institution’s Guide and A Coworker’s Guide, and use A Professional’s Guide to help you plan out the process.
Even if there are no transgender individuals that you are aware of at your institution, many of the policy recommendations can be implemented ahead of time to ensure that the institution is ready for future gender transitions. A Coworker’s Guide is also helpful in ensuring that staff are able to competently welcome transgender patrons and volunteers, as well as future staff members.
Please remember, every person and transition are different, so the Toolkit should be adapted for each unique situation.
