a gender written in purple text on a white backgrounda:gender is the cross-government support network for trans, intersex and nonbinary colleagues – and their allies!

a:gender delivers both diversity training and expert policy support to individual colleagues, and to departments as a whole. They also do lots of other work in the background with the goal of improving the lives and supporting the careers of trans, intersex and nonbinary colleagues and Civil Servants who have family members in those groups.

The network aims to provide expert advice, guidance and support to managers, staff and policy owners across the whole Civil Service.

What’s involved in the session?

This two-hour workshop session is designed to focus on diversity and inclusion, raising your awareness of social and legal issues, as well as giving you some tips and ideas for how you can be a better ally to both colleagues and customers, in and out of work.

No prior knowledge is required or assumed – come along and find out more!

    Unfortunately I can't attend this session however I highly recommend it if you can. I attended a shortened version of this session in York and found it to be insightful, thoughtful and very engaging.

    Will this event come closer to Colchester (my base) or London? Newcastle for two hours seems unlikely.

      Hi Wendy,

      This particular event isn't planned in the East/London region but we do have an event Inclusion in the Modern World on Feb 13 in London. A lot of the networks, including a.genda will be represented and several of them will be presenting as well. Details

      Hi Wendy,

      Thanks so much for your interest! I'm the north-eastern Regional Rep for a:gender and I'd love to talk to you about setting up an event in your region. We have Regional Reps across the country and I'm sure our London contact would be more than happy to arrange a session with your area. Feel free to drop me a line if you wish.

      Best wishes,

    If you ever have the opportunity to attend an event like this then please take it. An incredible two hours spent understanding how to be a better ally and person.
    Lex is an inspirational presenter.
    Thank you a:gender - I am truly inspired.
