As a Transgender activist with a wide range of knowledge and personal experience dealing with injustice and discrimination, I offer consultancy on how to better create policies and inclusive campaigns that serve to dismantle these negative connotations.
Although the delivery may be different the core of my consultancy is the following:
I ensure that they connect to the community in an authentic manner showcasing that they care about inclusivity rather than tokenism
I make sure that the client is using up to date language/terminology and often double-check documents if required
I offer suggestions for safeguarding measures to best protect members of my community
I provide options for ways to give back to the community through donating to grass-root projects or charities often offering introductions

This process required input from multiple resources and as a key figure in the LGBTQ+ community, I was asked to talk about my experience navigating this issue on their platform and ways in which I believed they could better protect people like myself.
