Jacqui Gavin BEM
Jacqui Gavin BEM joined the Civil Service in July 2009 after working her way up the private sector ladder. She has not looked back since. She has been able to combine her passion that has lead her to become a widely admired transgender rights activist with her current role as D&I lead at the Department of International Trade.
She was ‘Highly Commended’ at the 2015 Excellence in Diversity Awards and recognised as the 44th most influential LGBTI person in the UK by the Independent on Sunday. Jacqui continues to thrive in the LGBT community and was recognised on the Pride Power list in 2016 and 2017. Most recently in October 2020, Jacqui was awarded the British Empire Medal for her contribution to highlighting and driving positive change in transgender issues in the workplace.
Jacqui’s talks bring to life the ideals of diversity and inclusion. By relating her incredible story back to the corporate world she reinforces the importance of inclusion for everyone and understanding your colleagues.
