Utilising an external facilitator, this virtual workshop for all Library staff, particularly those in outward facing roles is an opportunity to build confidence and familiarity in all matters trans. This bite-size learning event takes the form of a conversation, rather than a lecture, and is both reflective and interactive. Participants will be encouraged to raise questions and thoughts throughout. The session includes break-out rooms using case studies where attendees can share thoughts and experiences with colleagues.

The event will be facilitated by Dr Kit Heyam, a Leeds-based transgender awareness trainer, academic researcher and activist specialising in public sector, higher education and non-profit organisations. They will draw on their own expertise in trans policy guidance and UK equality law, as well as experiences as a member of HE academic and support staff, charity coordinator, student, and as a trans person.
