Transgender Awareness Week 2022

by | Nov 17, 2022

13th-19th November 2022 marks Transgender Awareness Week.  Here at GatenbySanderson we have embarked on a journey of continuous learning and understanding.

We all have a lawful and moral obligation to protect our trans colleagues and friends, and to positively drive forward trans inclusion in the workplace, and indeed throughout wider society.  It is immensely important that platforms are provided to the trans community, so that we can listen, learn, and commit to meaningful and long-term change.

It is in honour of this that our Diversity and Inclusion Advisor Jade Beckles was able to interview Saorsa-Amatheia Tweedale, National Diversity Ambassador on trans issues for the DWP, and National Co-Chair of their LGBT+ staff network.  Thank you Saorsa.

“I’m hoping to empower more and more people to actually stand up for trans rights because of the attacks that’s currently taking place on the trans community”
