The Houses of Parliament are in the process of writing a Transitioning at Work Policy, to support individuals that have undergone, are undergoing, or are thinking about undergoing a change to their gender identity.

The aims of the policy are to ensure that staff are aware of the support they can expect to receive and that line managers understand their responsibilities, and the resources available to them, in supporting their staff.  Both Houses will be following recommended good practice from Stonewall.

The Diversity & Inclusion team in both Houses are looking for feedback from staff with experience of transitioning, and line managers who have supported staff with transitioning in the workplace. Please click here to find out how to get involved.
