The Equality Challenge Unit (ECU) suggested question: Is your gender identity the same as the gender you were originally assigned at birth?
ECU has a number of resources relating to gathering information across the protected characteristics covered by the Equality Act 2010. These resources can be found at Equality Challenge Unit. If you have any further queries regarding equality monitoring, please email ECU at [email protected].
