White House Hires Openly Transgender Woman

If it is true that change starts at the top of the organization, then the Obama Administration has made a bold statement with its hiring of the first openly transgender staff member.

Raffi Freedman-Gurspan will serve as an outreach and recruitment director for personnel in the White House Office of Presidential Personnel.

She also happens to be African-American.

So a win for diversity in several respects.

Before being hired by the White House, Freedman-Gurspan worked at the National Center for Transgender Equality as a policy advisor for the Racial and Economic Justice Initiative.
