As associates, we support these commitments by:
When first hired and as a transgender woman, Pat was conﬁdent in the Company’s commitment to providing an equal opportunity work environment. But during the ﬁrst few months on the job, Pat quickly felt discriminated against because of their identity as a transgender woman. It was not anything blatant, but Pat was not given the same challenging assignments, responsibilities, and opportunities as team members who identify differently. Although there was no one speciﬁc situation that represented Pat’s concerns, the situation had to be addressed.
At Kohler Co., our fair employment practices policy must be represented and upheld beyond the recruiting and hiring process. Concerns should be brought to a manager or supervisor, Human Resources, Legal, Compliance and Ethics, or the Ethics Helpline.
