AEA Equality Legislation Online Training

ALL of the protected characteristics defined in the 2010 Equality Act (EA2010) are safeguarded from discrimination and harassment. AEA training is inclusive and open to all.

AEA Online Training is focused around:

(i) the complex interplay between EA2010 protected characteristics’ and the ‘single-sex exception’

(ii) elements of the 2004 Gender Recognition Act (GRA)

(iii) the interaction between EA2010 and the GRA.

Attendees will:

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

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’.
