Gender Reassignment


Like the majority of higher education establishments, the University does not currently monitor the gender identity of its staff. This decision was taken is in recognition of the high levels of concern within the Transgender community about the purpose and use of such monitoring, and the need to build confidence in the University’s approach to issues of gender identity and gender reassignment before introducing a monitoring process.

There is no large survey data available at national level for the number of people who identify as Transgender.


Relevant Employment Policies and Procedures

The University has developed a policy to ensure that any member of staff who identifies as Transgender is treated fairly at work.  Accompanying guidance details the process for supporting staff who are transitioning while employed at York St John.
