The U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) recently announced changes to its discrimination charge intake process. In an effort to promote greater equity and inclusion for members of the LGBTQI+ community individuals who identify as non-binary will have the option to select gender “X” when filing a discrimination claim with the EEOC. Additionally, the EEOC will add Mx. as a prefix. According to EEOC Vice Chair Jocelyn Samuels, “Sexual orientation and gender identity are core aspects of every individual’s identity. The EEOC’s announcement that it will add a nonbinary gender marker to these forms will ensure that the identities of all those who come to our agency for assistance are acknowledged and embraced.”
