The transgender community was in the spotlight recently at a job fair held in Toronto. About 15 employers took part, promoting their brands and employment opportunities.

The one-day event was organized by Biko Beauttah, founder and chair of Trans Workforce.

“I’m a trans woman of colour in this world, just trying to make a living and life for myself, but then there are these obstacles, systemic obstacles that are constantly revealing themselves as roadblocks to my success,” she said.
