Find out how you can be an ally to trans and gender diverse people

​Transgender Awareness Week hosted by Professor Doug Hilton

You are invited to a seminar to celebrate Transgender Awareness Week with guest speaker Sally Goldner, from Transgender Victoria. The seminar, the first of its kind for the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute, will give you a chance to learn more about the T in LGBT.

You will find out how you can be an ally to trans and gender diverse people, and ways to support gender-transitioning colleagues. The Institute will also be launching its first policy aimed at supporting trans and gender diverse people in the workplace as it continues to strive to build an inclusive culture for all.

In her address, Sally will explain what the terminology means, and share an understanding of the lived experiences of transgender and gender diverse people. Sally will also provide some general inclusive workplace practice tips as well as tips specific for medical and research environments.
