As part of our partnership with Pride in Sport, GameDay is proud to announce that our system now supports the collection of gender identity data across the product suite wherever gender data is collected. This implementation has bought about updated terminology and input fields to better capture information, as well as represent and include people of diverse genders and sexualities. It also integrates more inclusive gender identity fields into applicable registration forms, member lists, member profile screens, reports and dashboards.
Within field configuration there are now three gender-related fields available for organisations to utilise:
1. Assigned Gender at Birth - the sex that was assigned at birth and is specified on their birth certificate (this is the existing field previously labelled Gender)
2. Gender Identity - the gender identity the member currently identifies as
3. Different Identity - this is a text response field if a member selects Different Identity from the Gender Identity field drop-down list
ASSIGNED GENDER AT BIRTH
This is the existing field (previously labelled Gender) that has always existed in the GameDay Passport system, we have just updated the terminology for this field.
This field is now called Assigned Gender at Birth and is the sex the member was assigned at birth which is specified on their birth certificate. The options available are:
Note: This field will still be used when assigning a gender to competition settings, product display rules and question display rules. No previous data or settings will need to be updated.
GENDER IDENTITY + DIFFERENT IDENTITY
These are two new fields added to the database (by default both these fields are set to Let Levels Below Choose) in Field Configuration to allow organisations to turn these fields on to start collecting Gender Identity data.
The field called Gender Identity allows members to be able to select from the following options:
- Non-binary/gender fluid
- Different Identity - if selected the Different Identity text box field will appear for the user to input their identity
- Prefer not to say
Please be sure to configure these fields to show on forms if your organisation wishes to collect Gender Identity data for your members. Click here to see how to do this.
