We continue our commitment to making Abcam an authentically inclusive place to work, and on the 31st March 2022, International Transgender Day of Visibility, we launched our Transitioning at Work Policy. The purpose of the policy is to assist trans, non-binary and transitioning colleagues, their managers and others who may be involved in supporting a colleague transitioning, showing what colleagues can expect from Abcam, together with highlighting practical information and support networks. “A transitioning policy is a major leap forward. It provides valuable guidance to support trans and non-binary colleagues in the workplace. It also sends a message that Abcam is welcoming, supportive and encourages all of us to bring their true selves to work.” Jess, Finance Business Partner Co-author of Abcam’s Transitioning at work policy Transitioned in 2012
