Trans Awareness Talk for National Grid

I had the pleasure of delivering a 1.5-hour virtual trans awareness talk to UK and US employees of National Grid today, as part of their LGBT+ History Month celebrations.

Following a pause for reflection on the tragedy of murder of trans teenager Brianna Ghey, I was able to give a first hand account of what it’s like to be transgender, before showing how you can support those who are, by being the best ally you can. I finished off with my customary no-holds-barred Q&A, where the attendees had loads of great questions for me.

After my session, I received this glowing recommendation on LinkedIn from Tim Riecken, Team Administrator & Lead of the Pride Steering Committee at National Grid: “Would not have the slightest hesitation in recommending Katie for anyone who is looking for a speaker and educator in the Trans/LGBTQIA+ area.
Katie was extremely open and honest about her journey and spoke extremely well about allyship and advocating for the Trans community. Katie spoke in such a way she was able to make a connection with so many, and at all levels of knowledge and experience. As the host of the talk I have received a number of messages/emails from those who attended, each and everyone thankful and inspired by her words, several of who are looking to speak to Katie separately. One of the pieces of feedback I received said that Katie was the best speaker they have heard in the entire LGBTQIA+ area and I wouldn’t disagree with that at all.
I will be hoping to work with Katie again soon, I feel her level of candor gets away from the sensationalism we often see portrayed elsewhere and allows people to see the true experience of a Trans person.”

I can’t wait to work with the lovely people at National Grid again soon!
