Supporting trans and non-binary workers

We love collaboration, and for this piece of research, we teamed up with the NHS, University of London and Work Psychology Hub. This exploratory literature review was to understand what the literature has to say about trans and non-binary workers in the workplace.

Community-led research is critical in our work, and for this project our advisory panel included Professor Stephen Whittle, Gray from The Clare Project, Josetta Malcolm and Dr Donna Willis (NHS).

We explored the existing literature by applying systematic review search methods to the academic and grey literatures. We are not claiming to have run a systematic literature review, as we believe the relevant academic literature is not sufficiently established for this. Our research team prides itself on evolving fit-for-purpose and robust research methodologies that ensure we can answer the important questions workplaces need.

A knowledge exchange project enabled the production of a video and report summary in conjunction with University of Sussex, 
The Clare Project, Chris Sasha Devey, NHS, Out Britain, and Studio Lutalica.

Seven key themes

  1. Trans and non-binary policies
  2. Bullying, harassment and discrimination
  3. Attraction, recruitment, promotion and unemployment
  4. Data monitoring, privacy and disclosure
  5. Transition and authenticity
  6. Human Resources Management (HRM), manager and colleague knowledge
  7. Supportive cultures

For each key theme good practice guidelines were collated and summarised. Three noteworthy areas of further research, specific to our commissioner, were also recommended.
