With Robin Moira White, Old Square Chambers
Vicky Wickremeratne, Partner at Allen & Overy will join Robin for an extended Q&A and discussion at the end of the substantive talk.

The session will be chaired by Katya Hosking, Devereux Chambers and member of ELA’s Training Committee

Robin Moira White from Old Square Chambers considers the effect of the Taylor v Jaguar Land Rover case on the protected characteristic of ‘gender reassignment’.  Why did the tribunal take such a bold step?  Who has the case extended protection to?  Who is not protected?  What are the implications for workplace policies and facility provision?  What lessons does the case have for diversity and inclusion?

Robin acted for the claimant in the Taylor case.  In 2011 she became the first barrister to transition from male to female in practice at the discrimination bar.  She acts and advises in transgender matters for both employers and employees.

There will be live Q&A and you may also submit your questions to us before the webinar here.
