Why do you need a Transgender Policy?

Society has come along way in the fight for tolerance, inclusivity and equality. But there is still work to be done for the LGBTI+ community, and particularly transgender people in the workplace. Having a Transgender Policy in place is a positive and compassionate way for a company to contribute to the cause.

What is a Transgender Policy?

Whether a person is transitioning or is transgender, gender reassignment is a protected characteristic under the Equality Act 2010. It is therefore a good and proactive step to create a policy that tackles questions around names/pronouns, formulates a workplace transition place and reiterates that discrimination and harassment won’t be tolerated.
