Exploring the Lived Experiences of Transgender Individuals as they Transition within Traditional Organizations

Boyers Discovery

Abstract: 

Using grounded theory, this qualitative study seeks to explore the lived experiences of transgender individuals in "traditional" workplaces. For clarification, traditional workplaces, for the purpose of this study, excludes workplaces and organizations that are LGBTQIA-focused (i.e., community centers, social service agencies, policy development agencies).  The purpose of this study is to create a collective narrative of voices representing transgender individuals who have transitioned in the workplace, including their preand post-transition experiences.
