Trans Day of Remembrance 2023

Monday the 20th of November 2023 will be Trans Day of Remembrance, marking the trans people who have tragically lost their lives as a result of transphobia around the globe. Our panel will listen to the stories of trans people, in their personal and work lives, and explore how transphobia affects them as well as how allies can do more to tackle this. Whilst strides have been made in trans rights, now more than ever - against the backdrop of transphobic legislation and rising hate crimes - we need to be loud, proud, and unequivocal in our support for our trans community. 

Sign up now! 

This panel will be an hour and 30 minutes.

This panel is sponsored by Lloyds Banking GroupOracle, and Novartis.
