Equality and Diversity Training

Non Binary ? Gender Fluid ? Pan Gender, Cis Gender ? Should I use the term Transsexual or Transgender ?

These are common questions we are asked by our partner organisations and whilst very important, they are of course, issues of terminology. 

Understanding how it feels to identify as a gender diverse person is a very important and relevant consideration in 2020. Being 100% clear about expectations – beyond just terminology –  including the differing requirements of trans customers and staff is a critical consideration in delivering inclusive services and employment. 

Using the very latest information and via detailed consultation with the LGBTQ+ communities, McKenzie offer a half day awareness workshop designed to provide very clear, practical guidance, information and resources in this area.

We have worked very hard to present a topic that many people find very confusing. This event is an ideal starting point for people wishing to acquire the necessary knowledge, skills and confidence to promote trans inclusive behaviours, language, actions and services.
