Workshop Activity - Mapping the Journeys

For every student or staff member, there are a wide variety of factors that interact with their ‘journey’ through study or work. This guided activity asks participants to consider the journeys of trans students or staff, to assist them to identify the areas in their college or university that may present additional barriers or difficulties. We have used this exercise both as an internal reflective activity with our Human Resources department, for example, and as part of wider training sessions with external organisations and other colleges and universities. It has always led to insightful engagement by participants.
