Lisa Vine

Lisa Vine is an LGBT+ Advocate, Consultant and Trainer based in Loughborough, Leicestershire. Supporting public, private and third sector organisations as they strive for LGBT+ inclusion, Lisa has six years of direct experience supporting trans and non-binary people and the wider LGBT+ communities, through 1-1s and advocacy services. Lisa has also developed and delivered LGBT+ inclusion training sessions and workshops to over 2000 professionals from a variety of backgrounds; including for those from the housing, nuclear and wedding industries and those in frontline services including police officers, midwives, nurses, GPs, teachers and counsellors, to name a few.

Lisa’s breadth of experience also enables her to offer consultancy services and she regularly supports organisations with the development of inclusive policies and procedures, in particular relating to working inclusively with and for trans and non-binary colleagues and clients. Furthermore, Lisa works with organisations to complete LGBT+ Inclusivity Assessments, which may include confidential staff surveys, assessment of existing systems and infrastructures and the organisation’s online presence. This enables Lisa to provide a comprehensive report, detailing where an organisation is, in terms of their LGBT+ inclusivity, and includes a short, medium and long-term strategy for improvement.

Described as a ‘one woman powerhouse’ on local BBC radio, Lisa’s proudest achievements are winning Leicester Pride’s ‘Unsung Hero’ Award and being referred to as the ‘fairy trans mother’ on national television by a group of young people she had supported and advocated for. When she’s not doing all things LGBT+ inclusion, Lisa can be found in a pub or cafe after a long walk with a hot drink and a good book or a puzzle book! In the summer months she can often be found in a tent, after a day of exploring the countryside.
