Our Top 10 Transgender Training Programmes.

With Trans Day of Visibility just around the corner it's a great time to invest in training programmes to support your transgender employees. Here are some of our favourites.

As visibility of transgender and non-binary identities has increased more and more people have felt able to be open about their gender identity at work, but many businesses and organisations are still failing to provide adequate support for these employees. By providing opportunities to explore trans specific issues and perspectives through transgender training programmes, we can create stronger cultures of belonging, improve the mental health of marginalised employees and develop the next generation of Queer Leaders.

The following is a list of our top ten training programmes to benefit trans people in the workplace, both through creating opportunities for growth amongst trans employees and by encouraging other employees to be better allies to their trans coworkers.

All of our events, training programmes and corporate solutions are fully bespoke, delivered by our global team of experts, and tailored to the needs of our clients. Don't be afraid to get in touch if you're looking for something not on this list!

6) Who Am I?

Leadership Programme.

‘Who am I?’ is a workshop series supporting trans and non-binary people with becoming more impactful and intuitive leaders. Each bespoke workshop takes a group of participants through a unique process of deeper self-enquiry; exploring identity and authenticity through a sequence of experiential workshops. With greater clarity of 'self', we become more intuitive with our decisions, and more intentional with how we show up to influence and support others.
