Our approach to supporting trans, non-binary and gender non-conforming staff

The University's approach to supporting trans, non-binary and gender non-conforming staff  (.pdf) sets out how the University supports new and existing trans, non-binary and gender non-conforming staff and those who transition whilst at Essex. It is a resource for trans, non-binary and gender non-conforming staff, for those with management responsibilities for trans, non-binary and gender non-conforming staff, for colleagues of trans, non-binary and gender non-conforming staff and for People and Culture staff.

Our approach to supporting trans, non-binary and gender non-conforming staff is one of a suite of documents that sets out how we aim to create an inclusive environment in which all staff feel safe and supported. Other related documents include our Athena SWAN Bronze Institution Action Plan, which focuses on our commitment to gender equality more broadly, our Zero Tolerance Approach to Harassment and Bullying’, our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Policy and our strategic approach to supporting all staff; ‘How we Work at Essex.
