Throughout history, life has not been easy for transgender people. And, although things may have improved, trans people still face discrimination and many challenges today.
This Understanding Gender Identity - Trans People in the Workplace from The Open University by FutureLearn is a great starting point for any individual or organisation looking to increase their awareness of trans identity. Ultimately, you’ll learn how to make your organisation more trans-inclusive.

- Describe the core contexts of gender identity and trans awareness.
- Explain the key terms and use of language in a trans-positive environment.
- Demonstrate a basic knowledge of the legislation around rights and responsibilities surrounding trans identities.
