About the trainer

Gendered Intelligence is a trans led charity working directly with some 500 young trans and gender questioning people from diverse backgrounds across the course of a year, primarily through our youth groups and 1:1 mentoring services. They train widely across all settings and to date have delivered training to over 25,000 professionals, including schools, colleges, universities, large international commercial organisations, arts settings, small charities, foster care / children's home settings, CAMHS and secure mental health settings, residential clinics, as well as across the wider statutory, not-for-profit and commercial sectors.

All of the trainers are professional trainers/facilitators who are also trans identified, and who have extensive grassroots trans-community experience (biographies available on request).

This is an online training session. The joining link will be emailed to you nearer the time.
