We’re gathering your feedback on gender identity monitoring ahead of us submitting to a consultation currently being run by the Civil Service Diversity & Inclusion team.

This consultation is now closed. Thanks to those who took part.

CSRA has been asked to respond to a consultation on gender identity recording in the Civil Service. This is an important topic which there will be a variety of opinions about, so we wanted to give our members – you – a chance to feedback before CSRA takes a formal position.

To be clear about how we are using the words, gender identity is how the individual thinks of themselves. This could be as a man, woman, a blend of both or neither. This can be the same as the gender presumed at birth or different.

The Civil Service is keen to anonymously monitor the working experience of civil servants who identify in a gender different to that presumed at birth. CSRA would also like to monitor the experience of these staff. There are good legal reasons to do this, as well as CSRA and the Civil Service being able to better work together to improve the experience of those staff.

We’ve created a survey to capture your views. It’s embedded at the bottom of this page, or you can use the button below to open it in a new window.

The deadline for completion of the survey is 1:00pm on 9 December 2016

    I have seen something simliar passed through to me By MoD D&I Policy. Some might think that some of my answers are a little flippant, but I am happy to discuss this matter at any time

    Am I ok sending this survey round my dept. gender equality network or is it just for CSRA members?

    I have not heard about the consultation through anyone else and know some of our members will have views they wish to share.
