Event description

Description

On 20 June 2019, Keele University – in partnership with Healthwatch Stoke-on-Trent – will run a one-day event on trans-inclusive education. The event is supported by the Keele Institute for Social Inclusion (KISI), Keele University.

Despite progress in transgender rights over the last decade, many young trans people continue to experience educational inequalities and wider forms of discrimination as a result of their gender identity. This event seeks to create a setting for individuals with a speciality and interest in trans-inclusive education and will explore how trans inequalities can be addressed in education contexts through engagement with academics, charities, and organisations.

The event will feature a keynote presentation by Dr Anna Carlile (Goldsmiths, University of London). There will also be presentations by Mermaids UK, researchers, organisations, and individuals working with the trans community in order to identify and promote the social inclusion of trans individuals in schools and society more generally.

The event is aimed at a wide audience and has two key aims:

1) to tackle issues of gender inequalities affecting trans youth;
2) to promote pragmatic approaches to supporting trans youth in schools and higher education.


There is no cost to attend the event and lunch will be provided. Please register here and specify any dietary and access requirements.
