Gendered Intelligence: Understanding diversity in creative ways


Gendered Intelligence (GI) is a registered not-for-profit Community Interest Company, established in 2008. Our mission is to increase understandings of gender diversity and to improve the lives of trans people. We work predominantly with the trans community and those who impact on trans lives; we particularly specialise in supporting young trans people aged 8-30.

Join the team

Gendered Intelligence consists of a team of skilled trainers, youth workers, mentors, public speakers, consultants, workshop facilitators and community practitioners. We have a working and in-depth knowledge of the wider trans community and of the young trans community in particular.

Gendered Intelligence is a ‘trans-led’ organisation which means many members of the team are trans identified. We feel strongly that there is not one way of being trans, and there are many different ways and approaches to help GI achieve its aims.

We are keen to ensure that collectively the team is diverse in order that we can draw from a wide range of backgrounds, perspectives and styles of thinking and working. As the organisation grows this is more important than ever.

Gendered Intelligence work is divided into four areas of services. These are: Trans Youth Work, Work in Education, Professional Services, Public Events. We also deliver a range of Special Projects.
