Description

Gender Awareness Training

About the event: What is the difference between genderfluid and bigender? Is this the same as transgender? What does cisgender mean? How can we ensure the services we provide, the language we use and the resources we produce are inclusive of all genders?

This workshop will be delivered by Tony Griffin, Chair of Navajo Merseyside & Cheshire LGBTI Chartermark, a signifier of good practice, commitment and knowledge of the specific needs, issues and barriers facing lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people in Merseyside.

Tony will discuss the different types of gender, enabling participants to better understand the life challenges people of different genders face; engage more effectively with people of all genders; become more aware of the legal obligations with regard to transgender staff, customers or service users and dispel myths and misunderstandings about people of different genders.

Who is it for: All staff, students and visitors. This event is perfect for anyone who doesn’t know anything about genders that aren’t male or female. It may be of particular interest to those is student facing roles at all levels, including hospitality and residential services, Porters, Caretakers and maintenance staff as well as administrators and academics – anyone in a customer facing role. It may also be of interest to any students in education, health and social care, social work, policing, counselling, criminology, sociology, psychology, etc.
