Gender Transitioning at Work Guidelines

Gender transitioning is a unique and personal experience and the University supports staff members who are transitioning or decide to transition during their employment.

To assist the staff member transitioning and staff who have supervisory responsibility for people who are transitioning, practical Guidelines have been developed.

While staff members are not required to disclose their gender identity, they are encouraged to discuss their intention to transition with their manager. The Guidelines outline what steps they can take within the workplace and what this means for other staff and students. Specifically, developing a work plan, updating University records, timeframes and communicating appropriately.

Also included are steps a manager can take to support the staff member and legal and University obligations. A person’s gender identity and expression is a part of who they are, not a lifestyle choice. The University is committed to supporting all staff and ensure smooth gender transitioning at work.
