Customer Operations Conference
Priceline Pharmacy

"Melissa Griffiths was a keynote speaker for us when we identified a need to further educate our Operations Leadership Team on the challenges faced by our transgender customers and how we can assist. Melissa's candid, open and, at times, difficult story was so helpful to the whole team to learn what support can look like for someone who has transitioned or transitioning. The understanding also came from realizing many of the struggles she and other members of her community face every day due to ignorance. She was incredibly generous in allowing the team to ask questions and everyone left feeling genuinely empowered and enlightened to be a part of a supportive solution and not the problem. I can’t recommend Melissa enough if you are looking to educate your team on LGBTQI + issues with particular emphasis on the transgender. She was an absolute pleasure to interview."
