Double the impact of your donation to us next week
Gendered Intelligence is taking part in Localgiving's Grow Your Tenner match fund campaign from next Tuesday, 17th of October.
This means that, from 10am on the 17th October any donation you make through our Localgiving page will be matched by up to £10!
It's important that you make your donation as soon as possible after 10am next Tuesday as the match funding could run out quickly.
There are two different ways for you to double your donation:
Option 1) Become a regular supporter of Gendered Intelligence
Please help us to make the most out of Grow Your Tenner by setting up a £10 monthly Direct Debit donation through Localgiving.
After your first six donations, the following six donations will be matched, providing us with over £200 in funding, including Gift Aid.
Regular monthly donations enable us to plan ahead.
Option 2) Give a one-off donation
A one-off donation of £10 can provide a travel bursary and refreshments for one young person at a youth group, or travel expenses for a volunteer to run a trans awareness stall.
Donate £10 during Grow Your Tenner and we’ll receive £21.67, including match funding and Gift Aid! That's a real bargain.
Option 3) Do both!
You can become a regular supporter of Gendered Intelligence and get the benefits of Grow Your Tenner for a one-off donation too.
Don't forget - Grow Your Tenner starts next Tuesday, 17th of October at 10am.
Please donate to us here: localgiving.org/charity/gendered-intelligence/
Thank you for your support.
Quality of Life Survey 2017
Help Gendered Intelligence and Goldsmiths build up a picture of how trans and gender nonconforming adults live in England by taking part in their Quality of Life Survey 2017.
Quality of life is a useful research concept that helps us to better understand people’s living standards, well-being, success and happiness. We want to look at the positive aspects of being transgender or gender nonconforming, as well as the negative.
You are eligible to take part if you are over the age of 18, live in England and identify as transgender and/or gender nonconforming. Transgender and gender nonconforming people feel that the gender they were assigned at birth does not match or sit easily with their sense of self.
It should take you around 20 minutes to complete the survey, but you will be contributing to a valuable study on the lives of trans and gender nonconforming people in England. Currently research about trans communities is spares in comparison to other minority groups.
If you took our first Quality of Life survey in 2016, you should have received an email link to the survey before the 15th of September. If you received the email but did not get round to completing the survey, please feel free to participate via the link below.
Take the survey: https://goldpsych.eu.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_3z3HOC8a5kBQfZz

We need your help!
Call you for images and words to represent trans diversity
At GI we want to include more trans and/or non-binary voices in our training sessions. Our aim is to show the diversity of real people, to give it a more personal touch and to take it beyond being just a paper exercise. This is where you come in.
We're looking for people willing to send us a good quality photo and a few words that describes your gender identity. We need an inclusive range of images and are keen to hear from people of colour, people with disabilities, people of all ages, and people with a variety of gender presentations.
These images and words will be used to create a power point presentation. This will only be shown for educational purposes and will not be shared after training in any way. Gendered Intelligence delivers training in a wide range of organisations, including schools, colleges and universities, LGBT organisations and government departments.
Your description can be anything from one word, to a short paragraph, (no longer than 150 words please). By sending these through to us, you're giving your consent for GI to use the images and your words in any of our training sessions. If at any point you decide you no longer want to be featured, contact us and we will immediately remove your words and image.
Please send these to Lee.email@example.com.
