Event description

Description

Chrysalis, the South’s leading charity supporting transgender people and their significant others, invites you to our second conference showcasing strategies and best practice for supporting transgender people in the workplace and beyond.

2018 saw a significant rise in online and media transphobic speech however organisations and individuals continued to work tirelessly to improve inclusivity and acceptance.

TransInclusivity is an opportunity for policy writers, influencers and those who work with and for trans+ people to develop best practice for the inclusion and support of trans+ colleagues, clients and the general public.

Delegates can expect to:

  • Learn about the real challenges faced by trans+ people in their everyday interactions and see why TransInclusivity saves lives

  • Develop tools for the development and implementation of transinclusive policy and practice

  • Work with peers in a safe and respectful space to explore challenges in their work which negatively impact their trans+ colleagues, clients and general public
