In this session, we will explore the global trans and non-binary space, including the relationship with other equality characteristics. Topics include statistics, terminology, tips for employers, allyship, questions and subjects to avoid when speaking to a trans or non-binary person, and an example of a transition journey.
At this session you will gain a good understanding of gender identity and expression, have an appreciation of what it means to be trans or non-binary, improve confidence to move forward with workplace adjustment and planning, including staff training, and recognise how to interact respectfully with the trans and non-binary community. There will also be a Q&A.
