Jobs for Intersex People
Intersex can be defined as, “a general term used for a variety of conditions in which a person is born with a reproductive or sexual anatomy that doesn’t seem to fit the typical definitions of female or male”. Intersex makes up the “I” in the acronym LGBTQIA and yet it is one often forgotten by many people.
Intersex people face a great deal of lack of awareness, stereotyping, bias, and discrimination. Unfortunately so, how little many of the general public know about sex/gender identity leads to this poor treatment.
At Aspiring to Include, we believe in the power of spreading information. We believe that the more we all know and learn about important topics of diversity, the better we can treat all kinds of people around us. In all areas of life, including at work. We also believe in helping people of all identities find the work opportunities they deserve.
On this page, we are going to talk a little more about how intersex people can find inclusive, equal, and diversity-positive jobs.
What Jobs Can Intersex People Do?
Being intersex doesn’t remotely change what jobs you can do. Intersex people can and should have the same opportunities as people from all sorts of gender presentations and sexual orientations. It is simply a variation of biology that should be treated with respect and understanding. It is not something that should limit intersex people in any way.
Intersex people often face discrimination and bias in the workplace. This means that the only jobs intersex people might be best suited to are those with inclusive employers and diverse environments. Starting right from the recruitment process. If you are an intersex person and you want to find a job where you can really excel, you can start by finding companies that offer diverse and unbiased recruitment processes. This will allow you to get the job you deserve rather than being limited based on bias.
