What’s in a name?


65% of trans people keep their identity secret from colleagues to feel safe and secure in their jobs.*

This percentage is greater now than it was in 2016 (52%), giving us some perspective on the gravity and urgency of the work needed to enable trans people to feel confident being themselves at work. In our latest episode of The Full Picture, we explore ways we can support trans people and those who are transitioning at work. Episode 5, "What's in a name?" features our very own Denise Breen, Head of Construction at Colt DCS alongside Katie Neeves, Trans Ambassador (She/her) for Cool2BTrans.

About the Full Picture

The Full Picture is a podcast from Colt Technology Services combining individual stories and expert opinions to make sense of the world around us. We’re excited to cover new ground in this series, such as the trans experience of the workplace, modern masculinity and coming out at work.

Giving every voice a platform to be heard and building an environment where our people feel comfortable bringing their whole selves to work is a core focus for our business. Producing this podcast is our way of taking one meaningful step towards that, through education, communication and listening.

The Full Picture blends personal stories from our Colties, their own experiences and unique perspectives, along with the views and insights from experts within our industry and beyond. Episodes will focus on topics that mean something to our people and the workforces of other organisations such as mental health, neurodiversity in tech, changing conversations about race, to name a few.
