Supporting Tran and Gender Non-Conforming Individuals in the 21st
Century

 

Within this event we’ll 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 a Stonewall commissioned ‘You Gov’ survey indicated that 1 in 5 LGBTQ people do not feel able to be open about their sexuality at work: furthermore 77% of those who’d experienced a serious work place incident said they’d prefer not to report it, fearing that nothing would happen.

The newly announced government action plan launched by the Equalities office is aiming to offer better more effective support to LGBTQ individuals and will get £4.5 million in funding.

Key discussion points will include:

  • 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


Refreshments will be served from 6pm with the event starting promptly at 6.30pm.

Please note that attendees should use the address, rather than the postcode, as some old satnavs will direct them to the Highfield campus rather than our building.

Our Speaker:

Joanne Lockwood - Transgender Awareness and Inclusion Specialist founder and CEO of SEE Change Happen

Joanne Lockwood is the founder and CEO of SEE Change Happen, an Equality Diversity & Inclusion Practice specialising in providing Transgender Awareness and support to organisations and businesses all over the UK.

Joanne is the first openly transgender past National President of the 90-year-old ‘Men’s Club’, The Round Table.

In 2016 she embarked on her personal rebrand, selling her successful IT services businesses that she had built up over 25 years and transitioned.

Through these experiences and others, she delivers keynote, seminars and workshops to promote and support Transgender Individuals and break down many of the myths, misunderstandings, and most importantly the fear of “getting it wrong”.

Her mantra is Smile, Engage and Educate and she passionately believes that “people are people” and, no matter who they are, deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.
