Considering trans

Presenter: Ellen Pugh, Policy Programme Manager

Institution: Equality Challenge Unit

Format: Interactive : a breakout session where participants have to undertake one or more tasks.

In 2016, ECU published new guidance to the sector on supporting trans students which explores:

  • issues faced by trans students in relation to records changes
  • changing trans students records
  • confidentiality
  • The range of genders, titles and pronouns that students identify with
  • data collection on sex and gender identity for HEI monitoring and external agencies

The session would cover these issues and provide an opportunity for participants to explore issues within their records systems.
