Description of Activity
Attended a 4-hour workshop, the aims of which were to:
- Set the wider context for trans identities – how sex, gender and sexual orientation interact; - Explore key terms and usage of language; - Offer basic grounding in the legislation around the rights and responsibilities around trans identities (e.g., Equality Act 2010, Gender Recognition Act 2004); - Begin to explore how an organisation can ensure it is being trans-inclusive; - Provide links to a wide range of resources.
As a result of the workshop, I learned how to:
- Have a wider understanding of trans identities, key terms and usage of language; - Have an understanding of the legal framework around trans equality and the responsibilities that places on the University and us as employees; - Have understanding of how we can support and deliver a trans-inclusive environment for staff and students; - Increase my confidence in work with trans colleagues and students
