Archived: TIAA Supports Transgender Day of Understanding

TIAA’s Alliance Employee Resource Group (ERG) is proud to actively recognize its lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning/queer (LGBTQ+) employees, and serves the LGBTQ+ community by building strong partnerships with local organizations, such as Time Out Youth that advocates for the personal development of LGBTQ+ youth ages 11-20.


Nov. 20 marked the annual International Transgender Day of Remembrance, which memorializes those who have fallen victim to, or continue to be victims of, acts of violence at the hands of those with an intense transgender prejudice.

To support its transgender employees and the community, TIAA hosted a Transgender Day of Remembrance special event in its Charlotte office. During the event, TIAA employees listened to a panel of young adults share their experiences and their support from the Time Out Youth organization.

TIAA’s eight ERGs are open to all TIAA and Nuveen employees interested in learning about different diverse groups, not just those they identify with the group’s focus.
