AEA Online Training

AEA training is inclusive and open to all.

Because of longstanding misguidance from official sources – see AEA’s booklet ‘Equality Matters’ for more detail – your organisation’s policies and practices may not accurately reflect the law.

AEA’s training will ensure that you correctly understand the UK’s equality laws.

3hr workshop, for up to twenty attendees, will encompass:

  • Equality Act 2010 and Gender Recognition Act 2004
  • Interaction between those two Acts
  • Interplay between ‘Protected Characteristics’
  • Applying/Not applying the ‘Single-Sex Exception’
  • Human Rights Act 1998, relevant Articles
  • Workplace (Health, Safety) Regulations 1992

The implications of the recent Forstater v CGD judgement, in which ‘gender critical’ beliefs became protected, will also be included.

Attendees will:

  • Gain a clear understanding of relevant legislation
  • Understand the parameters of the ‘Single-Sex Exception’
  • Acquire an analytic method to fairly balance competing rights
  • Be better equipped to mitigate discord

The Law
Q & A

Service-provision and the single-sex exception
Gender critical beliefs in the workplace
Q & A

Training around the single-sex exception has largely been delivered by trans-focused training organisations with a natural emphasis on the ‘trans perspective’. For balance, AEA’s training incorporates the ‘women’s perspective’.

AEA inhouse training for organisations or same-sector organisations.
