At my company, my company works across a number of floors. The bathrooms on my floor are private and only support one person at a time. The thing is, about 90% of the individuals working on this floor are male (myself included). I've found that typically the bathroom is occupied when I need to go, while the women's restroom is usually unoccupied. This means I'm walking up or down to other floors to use another restroom. It's not a huge deal, but it's getting old quickly.
A previous company I worked for fixed this problem by having unisex bathrooms for individual bathrooms like this. I'd like to make this suggestion, however I know having males/females share the same bathroom facilities can invoke all sorts of political emotion these days in America. I'm wondering if it would be in my best interest to make this suggestion and attach my name to it. I'm not trying to make any sort of political statement with this request, I'd just like to be able to consistently use a bathroom close to me, when I need to go!
How can I bring the idea of having unisex bathrooms to management in a way that is most likely to be accepted?
