From the Paper:

"Companies need to provide a safe and welcoming atmosphere for every worker. Businesses need to be proactive not just in order to avoid litigation but also for public relations reasons, and to make sure they are able to retain excellent employees. An increasingly liberal view of personal freedom and its place at work means a company's EEO policy is more important than ever.
"Encouraging an atmosphere free of discrimination is vital to the health of any company. Including individuals with gender identity issues within the equal opportunity policy solves the problem of potential discrimination against this class of person."
