The University is committed to supporting any employee who is transitioning. This reflects the gender identity standard developed by Statistics New Zealand.
The following Guide provides practical information about how gender transitioning of staff can be supported at the University of Otago.
All staff can change their gender recorded in HR systems online, in the Web Kiosk. Categories are "female", "male" and "gender diverse".
The purpose of the Ethical Behaviour Policy is to promote ethical interactions between members of the University community, and ensure that the University provides an inclusive environment of safety, respect and dignity so members can participate fully in all aspects of University life.
Part of this is about ensuring that University staff and students can work and study without being subject to any kind of discrimination or harassment, including gender discrimination, personal harassment, and/or bullying.
The policy contains processes for reporting and resolving breaches of the policy.
The Employee Assistance Programme is a free, confidential counselling service for staff. The purpose of the programme is to provide short-term, brief, intervention counselling.
