Imperial champions diversity with sector-leading pledge to support trans staff – by Deborah Evanson

Imperial has made a public commitment to supporting transgender members of its community, in partnership with charity GIRES.

In a first for the Higher Education Sector, the Gender Identity Research and Education Society (GIRES) has endorsed the College’s efforts to promote trans equality. This means that Imperial will be able to display the GIRES logo alongside those of Stonewall, Athena SWAN and the Two Ticks scheme to demonstrate its commitment to celebrating diversity and eliminating all forms of discrimination across the College.
