Type and Transgender: any relationship or implications? with Meredith Fuller, Gunilla Burrowes & Mark Toner
November 14, 2021 @ 9:00 am – 10:00 am Australia/Sydney
Is transgender identity related to Type? What are the implications in career development of the T and F functions?
This session will be presented in 4 sections with plenty of interaction and input from the audience:
1) Can Type Theory predict and explain gender fluidity?
2) Looking at the Judging Function, what impact will the change in gender have on a trans person’s career after they have transitioned?
3) Is there any indication from Type Theory that would provide insight into a person’s motivation to transition or revert?
4) What can workplaces do to understand and support their transgender staff?
This session is presented by three Australian speakers:

Meredith has experience with transitioning and transgender clients and her psychologist step-uncle came from Holland to conduct the first ‘gender reassignment clinic’ in 1960’s Melbourne.
