International Transgender Day of Visibility 2023

A message for everyone on International Transgender Day of Visibility from the LGBT+ Equality Network at Sheffield Children’s and Bo Escritt, Head of Equality, Diversity and Inclusion.

31 March is an annual event dedicated to celebrating transgender people and raising awareness of the discrimination faced by transgender people. It is a day to recognise and celebrate their contributions to society. This year’s theme is “I am enough.”

Here at Sheffield Children’s, our aim is to be a Brilliant Place to Work and that means celebrating difference and providing an inclusive environment for our colleagues and patients regardless of their identity. To truly do this, the Trust needs to do more to support transgender people.

We are pleased to be part of the rainbow badge scheme which lets our patients and families know that we are LGBTQ+ inclusive. 

We also have a thriving LGBTQ+ and allies network at the Trust which ensures that their voices are heard on inclusion as well as offers peer support. 

However, we know we can do more. It is not enough to only celebrate transgender people on days like this, but to reflect that support in all levels of the organisation.

Do you have any suggestions on how to be more inclusive of transgender people at Sheffield Children’s? You can email those suggestions to
