Gender Expression Toolkit

In addition to helping Colorado nonprofits address issues of diversity in the workplace, we also help them understand gender expression and the varying issues transgender people may deal with. Both the support of our grantees and two laws recently passed in Colorado reinforce our vision of a Colorado that welcomes and includes all people regardless of their sexual orientation or gender expression.

All of the nonprofits we support understand the value of inclusion and promote issues of equality within the organization’s circle of influence. For this reason we require all grantees to have an inclusive organizational nondiscrimination policy.

Colorado is home to people of diverse backgrounds, all of whom place a value on quality of life. We believe that treating all people fairly and equally only enhances the Colorado experience for everyone who
lives here.
