Transgender Economic Empowerment Initiative celebrates a milestone with its 100th job placement. The program, which launched July 1, 2007, announced the job placement of "Christine," a transgender woman in her mid 50s, who is now employed full-time with benefits as an administrative assistant in an established, nationally active nonprofit.
TEEI is the country's first coordinated public-private effort to transform the economic health of transgender people and their families. "TEEI reverses the high rates of unemployment and underemployment within the transgender community by empowering job seekers with skills necessary to compete in the workforce," says development coordinator Clair Farley.
The group's next job fair is scheduled for April 28 from 1 to 4 p.m. Pre-register here.
