Aldi releases gender transition guides to support transgender staff

Aldi has introduced a series of gender transition guides to support staff members who are either undergoing transition or already transitioned.

The move forms part of the supermarket’s wider Embrace Diversity and Inclusion strategy.

Developed with input from staff across the business, the guides aim to support transgender colleagues at all stages. They also provide  guidance to leaders and tips for co-workers on how to help their colleagues return to work.

Kimberly Taylor, store assistant at Aldi, said: “I’ve worked at Aldi for over three years and during that time have started to transition. Throughout this experience my team have been so supportive of me, helping me to feel confident and accepted every step of the way.

“The creation of the gender transition guides, when coupled with the care and support provided, makes it clear that my wellbeing and acceptance is a priority for Aldi.”

Aldi staff members will also be getting involved in the upcoming Pride events in Birmingham and Manchester.

Richard Shuttleworth, diversity and inclusion director at Aldi UK, said: “We want to ensure that Aldi is a diverse, inclusive and supportive place to work for everyone.

“We believe colleagues should feel confident to bring their truest selves to work, and hope the launch of these guides will help anyone who has transitioned, is going through a transition or considering it, to feel safe and supported in doing just that.”
