Ingersoll Gender Center performs needs-assessment and basic community research to help Ingersoll and other allied organizations craft and refine programs and services, and to influence public policy to benefit transgender and gender-variant people.
Perspectives Northwest - Community Needs Assessment Survey
In 2006 and 2007, Ingersoll took the lead in executing, analyzing and publishing the results of a broad-based, needs-assessment survey for the trans and gender-variant community in the Northwest. The results of this survey have helped Ingersoll and other organizations to better understand the changing demographics and needs of our complex and diverse communities.
Ingersoll works with state and local government to advocate for policies and programs to benefit the trans and gender-variant communities.
Ingersoll is a supporter of Washington Transgender Equality Project (WTEP), an affilitate of Equal Rights Washington, that focuses on works to advance equality and equal opportunity through political advocacy and action.
