Transgender & Gender Diverse Staff

We encourage a culture that is supportive of transgender and gender diverse employees. We recognise that you may identify differently to the gender you were ascribed at birth and support you to affirm your gender identity in a fair, respectful and inclusive workplace, free from discrimination and harassment.

The gender affirmation or transition process is different for everyone but it may involve you changing your name, title, appearance, dress, use of pronouns and other aspects of yourself to align with your affirmed gender. We can provide practical advice on changing your personal details as well as offer support through the affirmation process.

If you choose to disclose your intention to affirm/transition your gender and would like to discuss a gender affirmation or transition plan, you can do so with assistance from:

We support staff affirming their gender at work through our Gender affirmation/transition procedure.
