Deutsche Bank Supports Transgender Economic Empowerment Forum
Transgender and gender non-conforming New Yorkers need access to jobs and job readiness programs and it's up to the city and the private sector to make that happen, activists and bankers said at a forum Tuesday night.
Actress Laverne Cox, activist Cece McDonald and Queens-based organizer Lala Zannell joined First Lady Chirlane McCray for the Transgender Economic Empowerment Forum, held in the Deutsche Bank building at 60 Wall St. The event featured a job fair with recruitment and employment resource tables.
“This really is a first for Wall Street,” said Deutsche Bank Americas Foundation President Gary Hattem. “It’s really a historic moment.” . . .
