Trans in the Workplace - Creating an Inclusive Workplace for All
Mon 15 May 2017, 18:00 – 19:00 BST
All are welcome to hear Antonia Belcher explore her journey and discuss the impact of Trans issues in the workplace.
As one of the nine protected characteristics in the Equality Act 2010, gender identity poses unique challenges and opportunities in the development of an inclusive workplace. The College’s IDAHO talk will hear about Antonia’s personal journey and how she has navigated the predominantly male construction profession to lead a successful private practice. The talk will explore how organisations can make their workplaces more inclusive by effectively engaging Trans staff and how other colleagues can support and foster a safe workplace for all.
Attendance is FREE.
The talk is part of the College's programme to promote an inclusive work and study environment for all members of our Birkbeck community as part of the broader Athena SWAN framework.
IDAHO is the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia. For more information visit http://dayagainsthomophobia.org/
