This course was incredibly helpful and has given me lots of knowledge about gender appropriate language and more confidence in using it both personally and professionally.Training Participant
We deliver training for businesses and organisations in gender awareness. We can do this online or in person with options on session length available.
This session is designed to pass on knowledge and best practice, enabling your team to better serve and meet the needs of clients, customers and audiences of all genders, particularly those who fall under the Transgender* umbrella. It is an excellent way for your organisation to develop its Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI) practices.
Drawing upon our extensive experience in meeting the needs of the LGBTQIA community in creating safe and inclusive events, this session covers;
- Context. Where are we at with Trans Rights in the UK?
- Terminology. Words have impact. We explore definitions and when to use.
- Best practice. Looking at practical steps to implement, in order to be inclusive of transgender and gender diverse people.
- Sharing experiences. Stories help us make sense of the world. We use practical exercises to help develop understanding and participants to relate to the subject.
Outcomes – Your teams will;
- Feel more confident in their knowledge of the experiences of people who identify as LGBTQ+.
- Understand what gender inclusive language is and when to use.
- Understand the practical steps to help build gender inclusive practices and spaces.
- Take away their own resource sheet with content covered in the session along with further advice and resources
A really valuable session – it covers the legal and practical aspects (and flaws!) and discusses ways forward. It encourages empathy and reflection. Really well facilitated.Training Participant

*Transgender is an umbrella term for people who do not identify or feel comfortable with what is typically associated with the sex they were assigned at birth.
Brilliant training course, good to know more about the history so you are able to empathise. Would recommend the training within work as it helps to start the conversation to bring change, big or small. It’s a start!Training Participant
It was a lot of fun and really informative. I feel much more confident in my knowledge and feel I am better able to oppose outdated opinions and be an ally to the trans community.Training Participant
