RCSI launches gender identity and expression policy

By Dermot - 25th Apr 2018 | 3 views

The RCSI said that the policy was “developed following extensive consultation with faculty and staff.”

“In developing this policy, RCSI aims to foster a welcoming and inclusive learning and working environment for students and staff who are trans or gender non-conforming,” said lead author of the policy Dr Caroline Kelleher.

“We also wish to ensure a safe, healthy and comfortable space to develop gender identity and/or gender expression free from fear of discrimination or transphobia.”

The Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection, Regina Doherty launched the policy today.

Speaking at the launch, Chair of Transgender Equality Network Ireland (TENI) Ms Sara R Phillips said “The College has taking a leadership role among professional bodies as a welcoming and inclusive place for trans and gender non-conforming people to work and study.

“The opportunity to fully integrate into college life, free from stigma or fear of exclusion, empowers trans and gender non-conforming people to pursue meaningful careers in healthcare.

“TENI was delighted to work so closely with RCSI, both in the development of the policies and in the provision of training to faculty and staff,” she added.

RCSI CEO and Registrar Professor Cathal Kelly said that over 100 “front-line” RCSI staff as well as the senior management team had attended “Trans 101 training sessions, which is key to helping us effectively implement this policy. We are delighted to partner with TENI on this important initiative.”
