General Equalities and Human Rights information
Gender identity (trans equality)
Note: The Equality Act 2010 lists 'gender reassignment' as one of the protected characteristics. This is defined as people who 'are considering, undergoing or have undergone gender reassignment'. 'Trans' is a wider umbrella term and also encompasses, for example, people who are gender fluid, and people who reject the idea of two distinct genders. I have therefore used 'gender identity' in preference to 'gender reassignment' so as to include the full range of trans people.
Marriage and civil partnership
Pregnancy and maternity
Religion or belief
There are a number of special events, days and anniversaries throughout the year which are useful in highlighting particular protected characteristics and under-represented or disadvantaged groups. Some of these events are more well known and well established than others; some are international and others are UK based. Click on the links for further information. These are some that I know about - please email me if you know of others that I could add.
