Are you sure you are a trans inclusive organisation?

Categories: LGBTQ+ and Pride

Join us for this enlightening presentation where Joanne will be discussing some of the challenges being faced by Trans and Gender non-conforming people. These challenges affect every aspect of daily life – in the workplace and in our wider society,

This session is particularly relevant and timely as the results of recent surveys from all over Europe that indicated that 1 in 5 LGBTQ people do not feel able to be open about their gender identity and sexuality at work: furthermore 77% of those who’d experienced a serious workplace incident said they’d prefer not to report it, fearing that nothing would happen.

It is recognised that awareness and provision for Transgender people is still way behind others and employees need to take responsibility and take the lead and this session will introduce the following key discussion points:

• How much responsibility do organisations have to improve cultural attitudes towards LGBTQ individuals?

• Do existing recruitment methods contribute to discrimination against Transgender individuals?

• What can and should employers be doing to support individuals more effectively?

• What role should employers play in supporting employees who have been victims of hate crime?

Following the presentation Joanne will be around for an open Q&A where you can challenge her with your thoughts or maybe event ask her for some ideas on how you can tackle your own challenges.
