Transgender, Inclusion & Diversity

We are very excited to be inviting Joanne Lockwood from SEE Change Happen to deliver an engaging and interactive discussion about transgender awareness and inclusion, breaking down misunderstandings and the fear of getting it wrong.

Joanne Lockwood talks about her session

Joanne is a professional speaker, blogger, mentor and Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Consultant who talks about her journey in a very open, passionate but light-hearted way.

Within this event 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

Refreshments will be served from 6pm with the event starting promptly at 6.30pm.

Terminology – Introduction to Gender Identities

One of the questions I am asked all of the time is; “what is trans”.

Well… that is a big conversation, but the long and short of it is that “Trans” means is from the Latin and means “on the other side of” whilst “cis” means “on the same side of”.  So both cis and trans are an antonyms paring.  A non-trans person is cis.
