Scott Turner Schofield
Scott Turner Schofield (SKO-feeld)’s purpose in life is to inspire you, your family, your community, and your workplace to embrace gender diversity. He is a consultant, coach and spokesperson, regarded as one of the top speakers in the U.S. on the topic of transgender inclusion.
Considered one of his generation’s trailblazers in the movement for transgender liberation—openly trans since 2000—Scott has used his lived experience and intersectional analysis to change the nondiscrimination policies of several major universities, coach conservative CEOs at Fortune 50-500 institutions to trans sensitivity in the workplace, and teach youth tools for the self-esteem that living an authentic LGBTQ life requires. His TED Talk, “Ending Gender” is used for its welcoming accessibility, from Board rooms to dinner tables.
Storytelling is a key ingredient in Scott’s training and advocacy. As a professional artist, he has toured the US and Europe, was the first openly transgender actor in Daytime television with a recurring role on CBS’s The Bold and the Beautiful, and stars as a 1920s transgender jazz musician in the feature film The Conductor. “I work to put myself out of a day-job as a transgender professional, so I can be unemployed for the same reasons as any other actor,” he jokes.
Named a “Trans Influencer of Hollywood” by OUT Magazine, Scott is a trainer for the GLAAD Media Institute and oversees special projects in Transgender Media & Representation. He consults from script to screen on feature films and episodes on networks and screening platforms.
