Gender identity and work: an empirical study on the occupational engagement of trans-sexual people - The study is focused on the occupational engagement and professional achievement of trans-sexual people. Thirty-five participants that have been already processed to a surgery for changing their sex or that are willing to, were administered questionnaires. Results highlight that some critical situations remains linked to the social context about occupational engagement in which they live that is not still ready to recognize the worker status of trans-sexual people as well as at the low level of self-esteem and self confidence in their professional competences showed by participants to the study. For the latter work seems to be the answer to their needs of security and social inclusion more than a means for their personal and professional achievement. Parole chiave: gender identity, transexualism, occupational engagement
