Pride Month is a great opportunity to demonstrate your commitment as an ally to the trans community.
Stonewall's LGBT in Britain: Trans Report found that half of trans people (51 per cent) have hidden their identity at work for fear of discrimination. To create inclusive environments where everyone feels safe to be themselves, it's important to reflect on our allyship practices. Use this workshop to improve your understanding of trans identities and experiences, and equip yourself to take proactive steps as an ally to your trans colleagues, customers and service users.
