Employment Discrimination and LGBT Seniors 11/11/2013

For lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) seniors, finding, keeping, and advancing in good jobs can be a challenge. LGBT seniors may confront both age-related bias and anti-LGBT bias in the workplace, which can leave them even more vulnerable than those of their counterparts who share, and therefore face discrimination based on, only one of those characteristics. Legal protections against workplace discrimination based on age, sexual orientation, and gender identity have expanded dramatically in many places across the United States, and LGBT seniors can access these legal tools to protect their rights in the workplace.

Creating Equal Access to Quality Health Care for Transgender Patients: Transgender-Affirming Hospital Policies 11/4/2013

Over the last decade, hospitals throughout the United States have recognized that some groups of people face significant barriers to health care because of historic bias and discrimination against them. Many efforts have been launched to identify these groups, learn more about the challenges they face in health care, and welcome them into the nation’s hospitals. To reach out to these long overlooked groups, hospitals have examined their policies and practices to ensure that discrimination is clearly prohibited, recommendations for equitable and inclusive care are being followed, and staff are trained to provide knowledgeable, sensitive care.
