Includability Ambassador champions Trans inclusion in the workplace
Our wonderful Includability Ambassador Tate Smith has launched his own consultancy service after years of joining Equality Leaders on a freelance basis.
Tate is offering speaking engagements focussing on his lived experience as a trans man, policy frameworks for businesses to better support trans employees, and consulting to media companies as to how they portray trans people in advertising or media content.
“Trans inclusion in the workplace has been my passion throughout my transition and I want to make sure businesses are a safe place for trans people through policy and education. Thank you to everyone who has supported me throughout my career and given me the confidence to venture off on my own. 🖤” Tate posted on social media.
