20 November marks Transgender Day of Remembrance, which, each year, commemorates and memorialises those who have lost their lives as a result of transphobia and anti-transgender violence.

Hear from De Montfort Students Union Equality and Diversity executive Diya Rattanpal on the importance of challenging unconscious bias and shares advice on being a good ally to the trans community.

Increasing numbers of trans, gender-fluid and non-binary staff and students are choosing DMU because of our commitment to diversity and inclusivity and our LGBTQ+ inclusive policies such as our 'Policy on Support and Procedures for Trans, Gender Fluid and Non-Binary Staff and Students'. 

This policy provides a clear statement of the support we provide, and the procedures staff should follow when supporting staff or students whose experienced gender is different from that assigned at birth.

At DMU, we also have student societies and a staff LGBTQ+ and Allies network. This provides a forum and source of support for LGBTQ+ staff at DMU, and allies who want to learn how to best support the LGBTQ+ people in their lives and how they can contribute to an inclusive culture at DMU. 

This year we have also pledged our support the Trans Rights are Human Rights Stonewall campaign, along with lots of organisations across the country.
