Trans Inclusion Resource List for Professionals
September 2023 edition
Our Professional Services team have pulled together a list of UK and international resources on a wide range of subjects relating to trans inclusion.
Trans Inclusion at Work Policy Skeleton
Are you looking to develop or improve your policies regarding trans inclusion at work?
Any organisation wanting to improve its trans inclusivity is welcome to contact us for a free copy of our "Trans Inclusion at Work" Policy Skeleton and accompanying checklist. This covers not only supporting staff around transition, but all the aspects that need to be considered in your wider policy framework.
Trans Inclusion at Work Policy Glossary
To accompany the above skeleton, we offer a basic glossary of key terms used in the skeleton which can be downloaded here.
This glossary focuses specifically on a short list of terms that describe key ideas relevant to trans people’s lives and which help underpin positive, practical policy choices. Other glossaries take different approaches, and have different purposes and scopes. Several more extensive glossaries are listed in the 'Resource List for Professionals' above.
NOTE: When referencing any trans-related glossary, it should be taken as a guideline rather than definitive. In particular, it's important to recognise that the particular term(s) different individuals use to describe their personal experience or identity are many and varied. A person may use terms other than (or as well as) the ones included in any glossary, so it's best to avoid making assumptions. If you need to know how to approach language on an individual basis, there is basic information in the free Policy Skeleton, and the subject is also addressed in our training.

Downloadable toilet signs
Gendered Intelligence provides signs which you can download, print and use as temporary signage for toilets.
These signs can be used when you are hiring an external venue and want to set a higher standard of inclusivity for the toilets. Using these signs can also be a good way to start a conversation with venues about their facilities and promote trans inclusive practice.

Providing Services for Transgender Customers: A Guide
In November 2015 the Government Equalities Office released guidance on providing services for transgender consumers, co-produced with Gendered Intelligence. The guide offers service providers across all sectors clear guidance to make sure transgender customers and clients are comfortable and feel welcomed.
Football Association: A Guide to Including Trans People in Football
In 2015 Gendered Intelligence worked closely with the Football Association on their guide to including trans people in football.
The new guidance is based on the FA’s core ethos that football is for everyone.
The guide covers:
- Laws that protect trans people
- How to tackle discrimination at your club
- Making positive steps towards inclusion
- Issues around ‘fairness of competition’
- Supporting trans people as managers, players, supporters and other football roles
- Testimonies from trans people who play, watch and coach football
To accompany the guidance, Gendered Intelligence has produced a short film about trans people playing football. We hope the video will lead to greater understanding for people who play football and are involved in football at semi-professional and grass-roots levels.
