Katie Neeves is a trans ambassador providing trans-awareness training, public speaking and media appearances via her business Cool2BTrans. Katie lived for 48 years as a man before coming out very publicly in April 2018. She is now on both the BBC’s and ITV’s list of experts.
This webinar is aimed at anyone who may encounter trans people, either in the course of their work or socially – i.e. everyone! It is especially relevant to HR professionals who have not yet received any trans-awareness training as it will significantly enhance your knowledge on trans issues.
Katie will give us all the following:
– Inside knowledge of what it’s like to be trans by listening to Katie’s very personal story. This will help you to empathise with other trans people when you meet them.
– 12 top tips on how to be a trans ally (including language and behaviours)
– A brief look at employing trans people
– A no-holds-barred Q&A session in which Katie will answer ANYTHING. This is your opportunity to get answers to all those burning questions about trans people which you previously never dared to ask!
A bit about Katie
I am a woman on a mission! But not just any woman and not just any mission… Being an openly transgender woman and a trans ambassador, I am on a mission to not only show that it’s OK to be trans, but it’s actually cool to be trans too! Through my media appearances, public speaking engagements, blog, vlog, social media, trans awareness training courses and via support groups, my aim is to reach out to trans people who may be struggling with their gender identity, to reassure them and to lead by example. I want to help educate the general public too. The more people who are educated about trans issues, the greater the acceptance and the easier it will be for trans people to live their lives in peace. Most bigotry and prejudice comes from ignorance and fear of the unknown. Education can and does save lives.
