Undergraduate study on awareness of gender terminology

An undergraduate dissertation study at the University of York is exploring awareness of gender terminology (taking account of social group membership). You can help out by taking a survey in which you will be asked about your knowledge of specific terms.

Andy Law

I’m the Secretary of the LGBT Staff Network. With the support of the Steering Group, I take a lead on coordinating the group’s activities, including liaising with a number of external organisations. I set up York LGBT History Month, have been involved in various capacities with York Pride and York LGBT Forum for the majority of my time in York, and jointly led the student group here as an undergraduate. I also act as Equality Champion for Registry, where I’m based in the Academic Quality Support team.
