Trans Awareness: The Basics

With an estimated 1% of the population falling somewhere on the broad “trans” spectrum, public-facing organisations are likely to encounter a range of diverse trans people in the course of their professional work. Employers, too, need to be ready and able to welcome, include and support trans people as part of their workforce.

The session will:

• Explain what ‘trans’ means and describe the diversity of those who might use the term

• Introduce key concepts crucial to understanding trans people

• List the main legislation relating to trans identities

• Outline ways an organisation can work towards being trans-inclusive

• Provide links to further resources and help

Gendered Intelligence


Gendered Intelligence (GI) is a trans-led charity working across the UK. We were originally a Community Interest Company, established in 2008.

Their mission is to increase understandings of gender diversity.

GI's vision is of a world where people are no longer constrained by narrow perceptions and expectations of gender, and where diverse gender expressions are visible and valued.

They work with the trans community and those who impact on trans lives; we particularly specialise in supporting young trans people aged 8-25.
