This Can Happen supports organisations and their employees with the right solutions to create a positive environment for good mental health in the workplace. This podcast series is This Can Happen in conversation with changemakers and thought leaders within workplace mental health.
In today’s podcast, we welcome the inspiring Emily Hamilton. Not only is she a This Can Happen Ambassador but a role model at her workplace, RS Components, and within the Trans community. Emily’s aim is to bring a greater understanding of those people who, in her own words, were 'born with the wrong parts.' Today Emily will be sharing with us her journey of gender dysphoria and being a closeted trans, the fear and shame that she felt for decades, and how this impacted hugely on her mental health.
