Inclusion for me, inclusion for you, inclusion for everyone!

To be honest, being part of the LGBTQIA+ community is most definitely not always shiny and colorful, as our flags are. Whilst the society we live in still witnesses expressions of homophobic behavior towards queer people, we manage to thrive in our personal and collective journeys, both as individuals and professionals. The 2020 National Survey on LGBTQIA+ Youth Mental Health stated there are more than 1 in 3 LGBTQIA+ youth experiencing discrimination in the workplace in the US, with severely increased rates amongst transgender and non-binary folks. In my country, Brazil, 68% of the LGBTQIA+ youth experience discrimination within the workplace, despite the current Federal Law which edited the legislation regarding discrimination and prejudice, to outlaw discrimination based on sexual orientation and gender identity.

We bravely and brilliantly have been occupying more and more positions in multiple industries – and, as the room to diversity enlarges, the greater are the possibilities for our community to be part and act within the companies aiming for a more inclusive culture. I am a part of this community, and it is mind expanding to have this opportunity to speak up about me – not about what I can produce, but about who I am and what I go through as a human being. I can testify how a work culture of inclusion and diversity heavily affects my professional performance, as it generates a healthy and welcoming work environment, where who I am as a person is not segregated, but beautifully celebrated and appreciated. 

At 10K Humans, we not only have a safe space to develop and grow, but we also have security to share our thoughts and inputs as a team, well assured that we are being honestly heard and taken into consideration into formulating our company’s next steps.

Projects:
— Partnering with scholars across the academic landscape, we’re efforting to humanize the transgender population by understanding how they score on normal variables of personality and gender-stereotyped behavior. This large-scale quantitative project focuses on and engages with the transgender community as people, rather than as a clinical, pathologized population. Uniting academics from Loyola Marymount University, Northeastern University, and University of Rhode Island, this work aims to add to the incomplete body of scholarship on transgender people.
— Working alongside Lindz Amer and Queer Kid Stuff, we’ve conducted a multi-part brand awareness study to establish awareness of the brand and Amer’s new book Rainbow Parenting. In over twenty in-depth interviews and a rigorous quantitative survey phase, we’ve uncovered valuable insights into opportunities for customer engagement and opportunities to bolster customer financial support.
— Supporting HoMie, an Australian-based charity tackling youth homelessness, by testing innovative software from Research Goat. By conducting in-depth interviews via a variety of methods, we’ll unearth crucial insights about the customer experience at HoMie, and follow up with a large-scale quantitative survey to understand the charity’s reach.
— Assisting Hands on Tokyo as they endeavor to address disability rights and environmental issues in Japan. In response to one of Hands on Tokyo’s inspiring live events, we delivered a video reel and additional content, both featuring enhanced accessibility for Japanese and English speakers.
