GLOB&L, Bausch & Lomb’s Rochester-based affinity network for Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgendered employees. Meets every Thursday in Area 67, conference room at the Optic Center.
The purpose of Pride At Work is to mobilize mutual support between the organized Labor Movement and the LGBT Community around organizing for social and economic justice.
We see full equality for LGBT Workers in their workplaces and unions.
We work towards creating a Labor Movement that cherishes diversity, encourages openness, and ensures safety & dignity.
We aim to educate the LBGT Community about the benefits of union membership for LGBT working people, and to build support and solidarity for the union movement in the LGBT community.
We intend to do this in the spirit of the union movement’s historic motto, “An Injury to One is An Injury to All.” We oppose all forms of discrimination on the job and in our unions based on sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, race, national or ethnic origin, age, disability, religion o political views.

The Transgender at Work web site was founded in 1997. It is no longer being actively maintained, and is out of date. It is being kept up as a resource and for historical purposes.
The Transgender at Work (TAW) project is a focal point for addressing workplace issues for the transgendered. TAW provides resources for innovative employers who want to set their company employment policies to help their transgendered employees to be at their most productive, without spending energy hiding an important part of themselves and pretending to be something they are not.
Transgender at Work (TAW) focuses on voluntary cooperation between employers and employees. While civil rights laws are important to understand, and provide useful examples of language, advocacy for laws is outside the scope of TAW.
