Trans people experience high rates of harassment and discrimination in the workplace.
"The National Center for Transgender Equality survey describes harassment at work as “a near-universal experience” for transgender and gender non-conforming employees, with 90 percent of respondents reporting that they had been harassed at work or forced to take “protective actions” (like hiding their gender identity) in order to avoid harassment." - Bustle

Working for a travel company like Vrbo is an opportunity many of us daydream about, but for Gabriela Gil it's her reality.
Almost two years ago, Gabriela stepped out of her comfort zone and attended a PowerToFly networking event with #Vrbo - an event that included Vrbo's president, members of its executive team, and the CEO of Life at Expedia Group, Vrbo's parent company.
A few months later, Gabriela landed a role at Vrbo as a #SoftwareEngineer II, where she enjoys travel perks, wellness and fitness reimbursements, 401k matching, stock options, and up to 20 weeks #MaternityLeave/#PaternityLeave.
Read on to learn more about Gabriela, her experience with #PowerToFly, Vrbo's process, and their approach to #DiversityAndInclusion.
