Beyond the Binary: Guide

Welcome to Moving Beyond the Binary: a Guide on How to Make Your Organization Meaningfully Inclusive of Two-Spirit, Trans, Non-Binary, and Gender Diverse People.

We partnered with Mirror Image Media to create a Moving Beyond the Binary video! It features three tips to include gender-diverse folks at work, with appearances from some of the participants from the print guide.

Watch these short key videos to get an idea of what the guide has to offer!

This guide is intended for any employer, service provider, business, or other organization in Nova Scotia. The purpose of the guide is to help you understand the needs and experiences of gender-diverse populations, what the law says about gender identity and expression, and the importance and value of fostering meaningful and authentic inclusion of two-spirit, trans, non-binary, and gender-diverse people across our province.

Our communities, our institutions, and our lives are all made better when everyone can feel safe, respected, and included in the spaces we share. This includes spaces such as our workplaces, schools, businesses, coffee shops, restaurants, shopping centres, government agencies, and many other organizations that are essential parts of life in Nova Scotia.
