IPG Hosts Trans Health Panel Discussion During Pride Month

30 Jun 2023

Rounding out Pride Month, IPG’s PLUS hosted the “Trans Health: Behind the Politics” panel discussion on gender-affirming and LGBTQ-inclusive healthcare. The conversation centered around compelling personal narratives to shed light on the significance of gender-affirming and LGBTQ-inclusive healthcare.

“We can design a more compassionate world only if we begin by creating connection. That’s why having this conversation about the nuanced challenges transgender folks face in the healthcare system everyday is so important; we can only start building solutions once we start listening to those who are directly impacted by the inequities that create those challenges in the first place,” says Maggie Cavaliere, Co-Chair of PLUS and VP, Director of Experience Design Strategy at YuzuYello. “These types of conversations both affirm that everyone has a place here at IPG, while also giving allies the tools they need to more proactively create a more inclusive and welcoming environment.”

Moderated by Christine Cariño (they/she), Founder & Managing Partner at Conscious Thrive, the discussion featured panelists Al Benbow (they/them), Associate Designer at Jack Morton; Megan Lagrou (she/her), education advocate and mother of a trans teen; and Dr. Christopher Swales (he/him), a primary care physician who provides gender affirming care.
