Trans inclusion in Education

GSA

There has been a flurry of media interest recently regarding our work in education around trans inclusion and celebrating gender diversity. The interest came following a conference at the Girls Schools Association  on Thursday 16th June. It was a fantastic day, a part of which was dedicated to transgender students. It featured Jay Stewart from Gendered Intelligence, two head teachers (both of whom are working with Gendered Intelligence) as well as a young person who is a Gendered Intelligence youth group member and student at a GSA school! It also became clear in the Q&A that many of the schools represented there also had transgender pupils. Consequently more and more schools are thinking about ways in which they can fully support all of their students, including their trans students.

Gendered Intelligence has now developed a range of services for all schools, colleges, Universities and other educational providers. These include mentoring, workshops and assemblies, staff training and consultation.

The panel finished with a huge round of applause.

Whilst the media interest has been a bit reductive in its focusing on gender neutral language, it has given Gendered Intelligence an opportunity to share our services to other educational institutes and young trans people.

Gendered Intelligence provides a non-judgemental service that supports all educational settings to develop and improve their trans inclusion and gender diversity good practices.

Here is a list of media pieces:
