This article evaluates a pedagogical intervention designed to reduce the
transphobia of North American undergraduate business students. Participants
were enrolled in an organizational behavior course. They resolved a simulated
dispute between coworkers over accommodating the bathroom choices of a
transgender employee. Answers were classified as demonstrating inclusion,
compliance, or hostility with the inclusive response being the establishment
of gender-neutral restrooms and the hostile response being refusal to accept
the transgender employee’s bathroom choice. In the first year, 194 students
completed the exercise with no advance preparation, while in the second
year, 221 students performed the same task after reading a brief article about
transgender employees. Results suggest that the intervention was effective as
the inclusive response was most popular in the second year even though it had
been least popular in the first year. Complete success was not attained, as one
sixth of the students in the second year chose hostile responses. Implications
for research, teaching, and practice are discussed.odating the bathroom choices of a
