Supporting Tran and Gender Non-Conforming Individuals in the 21st Century
Join us on 19th November where 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
