Hi @RCObsGyn @morris_ep @EHRC @EHRCChair @KishwerFalkner @trussliz @GEOgovuk

It's good to see the 'EQUAL OPPORTUNITIES MONITORING FORM' to join your Women’s Network asks for the sex of applicants with the correct two options of female and male...

rcog.org.uk/globalassets/d… 1/6
...but you then ask "Is the gender you identify with the same as your sex registered at birth?" 2/6
Can you say what you mean by that question, what personal information you are trying to gather and what you intend to do with it?

How is someone who doesn't have a gender they identify with supposed to answer ("I do not wish to disclose" would not be a suitable response)? 3/6
I note your "Job Applicant Privacy Notice" states you "may collect, hold and use" information including:

"...your name, title, address, email address, phone numbers, date of birth and gender."

rcog-careers.org/s/Job-Applican… 4/6
This lists 'gender' but not sex. Since you are processing personal information on the sex of applicants, can you state the lawful basis under UK GDPR on which you are relying? 5/6
Please respond.

Hi @scouts @EHRC @EHRCChair @KishwerFalkner @trussliz @GEOgovuk

The 'Diversity Monitoring' section of your job application for your 'Equity [sic], Diversity and Inclusion Executive' vacancy says you use the information 'to ensure our recruitment processes are... 1/21
...open to all sections of the community.'

As it is a part of your job application process, I assume its purpose is to help you to ensure that you are recruiting without unlawfully discriminating under the Equality Act 2010.

I also note the EHRC guidance on this:

Hi @CommissionerDA @EHRC @EHRCChair @KishwerFalkner @trussliz @GEOgovuk

I see you changed your survey on Domestic Violence today.

Yesterday, it had a question, "17 What is your gender? We refer to gender as what you identify as ...

homeofficesurveys.homeoffice.gov.uk/s/DAC-Independ… 1/13
...rather than your biological sex." with options:

Non-binary 2/13
This was followed by question 18 on something you label as 'trans history'. 3/13

Hi @Law_Commission @EHRC @EHRCChair @KishwerFalkner @trussliz @GEOgovuk

Can you explain why, in the 'Equality and Diversity' section of your job application, you are still asking for the 'Gender' of applicants using the two options that are the two sexes as defined in the Equality Act 2010? 3/6 ImageImageImageImage

Hi @brownlowcentral @CentralLpoolPCN @EHRC @EHRCChair @KishwerFalkner @trussliz @GEOgovuk

Your job advert says you are "committed to equality and diversity, and we strive for our workforce to be representative and inclusive of the complex and...

beta.jobs.nhs.uk/candidate/joba… 1/24
...diverse community, which we are proud to serve." [sic]

You then say, "we actively encourage individuals who self-identify as having protected characteristics..." and that you are "particularly keen to encourage applications from: women and gender minorities;" 2/24
The 'Equality and diversity monitoring' section of your application form says "There are protected characteristics set out by the Equality Act 2010." You then list "gender and gender reassignment".

Gender reassignment is a protected characteristic but 'gender' is not.

Hi @MidwivesRCM @EHRC @EHRCChair @KishwerFalkner @trussliz @GEOgovuk

I note your committment today to @millihill to ensuring "women are never erased":

I also note you are a Stonewall 'Diversity Champion'. 1/25
The 'equality monitoring form' in your job application says you use the information "on several characteristics relating to equality and diversity" to "ensure effective implementation of our commitment to equal opportunities".

Hi @ADVANCEcharity @EHRC @EHRCChair @KishwerFalkner @trussliz @GEOgovuk

I note your vacancy for 'Brent and CouRAGEus Manager' (VAWG TEAM MANAGER) is "open to female applicants only as being female is deemed to be a genuine occupational...

...requirement under Schedule 9, Paragraph 1 of the Equality Act 2010."

I note your application form does not ask for the sex of applicants but asks, "Do you meet this Occupational requirement?" Can you say why you don't simply ask applicants to state their sex? 2/26
You have a section of the form that says you are "committed to encouraging diversity and inclusion and eliminating discrimination" and you reiterate that applicants must be female. 3/26
