Marnie, who identifies as gender neutral and goes by gender neutral pronouns, created their first LGBTQ training as a Peace Corps Volunteer in West Africa. Marnie then worked for the Los Angeles Gay & Lesbian Center, where they organized and canvassed for gay marriage.
After coming out as gender neutral at Columbia Business School, Marnie realized that their peers were a bit confused and had a lot of questions. Marnie created a Transgender 101 training, which now occurs annually at Columbia Business School. Marnie also worked with the school to get a gender neutral bathroom created and add an option other than male and female into the admissions application.
After graduating with an MBA in Operations, Marnie began work as a Global Process Manager at Google. While at Google, Marnie mentioned the need for trans education at Google to their colleague, Kevin Perry, who launched an LGBTQ Ally Program for Bank of America. Drawing on their previous training experience, Kevin and Marnie created Transgender @ Google, a training that has now been given at Google offices around the world and to over 5,000 Google employees.
Marnie now works as a Diversity Manager on the Products & Capilities Team, where they help lead inclusion sessions in New Googler "Noogler" Orientation as well as sessions for facilitators to create more inclusive learning environments.
