Gender identity in the workplace


Overview

Employers have made great strides in creating inclusive workplaces. However, many still have little or no experience of trans, non-binary and intersex employees, causing individuals distinct challenges.



This event will explore the key areas of legislation and good practice surrounding how employers can better support trans, non-binary and intersex employees.

Business need

The trans, non-binary and intersex community is currently believed to make up around one per cent of the UK population. However, numbers are increasing, especially within the age group defined as millennial. As this group enters the workforce, employers will see an increasing number of employees who identify as trans, non-binary or intersex.



It is important that employers are proactive in their policies and procedures surrounding gender diversity. Addressing concerns now is crucial to maintaining a diverse, inclusive and productive workplace.



This event will enable delegates to implement and improve gender diversity and inclusion within their workplace. Delegates will gain an understanding of the relevant law and good practice for ensuring employee engagement, retention of staff and legal compliance.



All delegates will receive an electronic certificate of attendance for their participation in the training.

Suitable For
