What you can do

Trans Allies programme

Trans allies are crucial to achieving trans equality. This programme explores the steps individuals can take to be effective allies to trans people.

As part of Stonewall’s commitment to trans equality, we are proud to launch the Trans Allies programme, kindly supported by EY. It will empower attendees to be active and positive allies who work to create more inclusive workplaces for all trans people.

The programme offers you the chance to:

  • Explore and better understand language and terminology
  • Hear personal stories from trans people and learn about the lived experiences of trans individuals in society and at work
  • Recognise your influence and responsibility when it comes to creating an inclusive workplace

Attendees will leave with:

  • A deeper understanding of the common impacts of transphobia on trans people and the trans community
  • Practical ways to step up as an effective and positive trans ally
  • A network of trans allies who can create more inclusive workplaces together
I grew up in the 80s, when the UK was a very different place. The progress the UK has made in equality for the LGBT community would not have happened without the support of many allies. Therefore, as a white gay man, I try hard to bring about positive change for people who identify differently from me. I am determined to support my trans colleagues and customers on a journey where the destination is hopefully true equality for all. As an ally, I take responsibility to consistently influence our working culture and practice to be inclusive and take a zero-tolerance approach to bullying, harassment and discrimination.
