Leadership Espresso – Mindout: Trans Allyship
You are booking onto ‘Leadership espresso – Mindout: Trans Allyship
About the session:
This 90-minute leadership espresso forms part of our inclusion series on LGBTQ History Month February .
In this session, we will explore experiences of trans and nonbinary people from a non-clinical perspective, including learning about social and medical transition. Delegates can expect to learn about what it means to be an ally in theory and in practice and explore what the trans and nonbinary community needs from its cisgender allies. The workshop will also explore non-optical allyship, using trans-inclusive language, and the best practices and limitations of pronouns in the workplace.
