CHAMPIONING GENDER AND SEXUALITY ALLYSHIP CASE STUDIES Directions: Select one case study from the options provided. Each case involves individuals with diverse gender and sexual identities encountering various forms of oppression. Case Study 1: Workplace Diversity Training You are an experienced Human Resources manager in a multinational corporation. Two of your employees, Alex, who identifies as an Indigenous American, who is also Two-Spirit, and Rosa, a Latinx transgender woman, have raised concerns about the company’s culture and attitudes towards nonbinary gender, sexual, and racial identities. Their experiences range from enduring microaggressions to encountering ignorance and disrespect. This culture extends to top leadership, with the CEO incorrectly using pronouns and expressing reluctance to delve into gender-related topics. Rosa is unfairly burdened with representing all Latinx and transgender individuals, and Alex’s Two-Spirit identity is often mocked or dismissed. This dismissive culture is beginning to impact team cohesion, morale, and productivity. The staff’s lack of understanding and respect for diverse identities is creating a hostile work environment, which has caused employees like Rosa and Alex, along with others who are committed to DEI, to seek help from you so they can perform their best. Case Study 2: School Bullying Incident You are the vice principle of a local high school where Cashu, a non-binary student with a physical disability that limits their mobility is enrolled. Using the men’s or women’s restrooms at the school has been a stressful experience for Cashu due to negative encounters related to their non-binary identity. From being cornered by a group of students in the men’s restroom and being questioned about their gender, to being laughed at in the women’s restroom, the fear and discomfort Cashu experiences are palpable. A potential solution to Cashu’s bathroom dilemma involves using a family-style restroom in the teacher’s lounge. However, this bathroom lacks the necessary disability accommodations for Cashu to easily use. The school also lacks a policy or facility for non-binary or transgender individuals, indicating a need for more comprehensive and inclusive policies. Cashu feels overlooked and uncared for by the institution that’s supposed to ensure their safety and wellbeing. Cashu’s parents have approached the school administration about their situation, but progress has been slow, exacerbating their feelings of frustration. They’ve had to face awkward questions and comments from both students and staff, contributing to their feeling of being marginalized. The last straw for Cashu was when a teacher voiced their “confusion” about Cashu’s identity in front of the whole class, leading to further embarrassment and isolation and the reason they came to your office today for help. CHAMPIONING GENDER AND SEXUALITY ALLYSHIP CASE STUDIES Case Study 3: The Neighborhood’s First Stay-at-Home Dad You’re a social worker in a suburban neighborhood that largely houses military families. One of the families in your community is unique in that the mother is a high-powered leader in the Navy, and the father has chosen to stay at home and take care of their two young children. Even though he’s perfectly happy and finds his role fulfilling, the father frequently faces subtle and overt forms of sexism from neighbors and other parents. He’s often the only man at neighborhood gatherings or school events, where his parenting capabilities are subtly questioned due to his gender. People regularly express surprise or even disapproval when they learn about his situation. Neighbors have also commented on his “bravery” for taking on “mom duties.” Moreover, he’s excluded from the weekly neighborhood “moms’ group” which is sponsored by your employer, where important community discussions often take place. Despite these challenges, the stay-at-home dad continues his role, believing it’s the best arrangement for their family. However, the continuous judgment and stereotyping are taking a toll on his mental health, leading him to seek support from you, the neighborhood’s social worker.

Championing Gender and Sexuality Allyship
Allies for Inclusivity: A Call to Action

In today’s world that considers equality as one of the greatest aspirations, our schools
should be seen as providing places that help every student become safe and feel accepted. On the
flip side, Cashu, who is non-binary in gender and mobility restricted, handles unnecessary
obstacles inside our high school’s hallways. The innocent selection of men’s as opposed to
women’s restroom rooms has evolved into a place of extreme dread and uncertainty because
negative encounters and lack of comprehension have left Cashu invisible, just neglected.

As a union of our people, we are appointed agents to establish a culture that fosters
inclusion by advocating for an environment where barriers and prejudices revolve around any
student. The solution is more than empathy; it cal...
