Take part : The Lesbian & Bisexual Women’s Work Survey

SPM Group, the people behind the British LGBT Awards, are launching a new multi-identity initiative addressing the needs of lesbians and bisexual women in the workplace – an area that there is a need for more research and support. Their recent British LGBT Awards saw only 8% of nominations come from lesbian and bisexual women and they want to know why. Please help them get responses to their new Work Survey. The survey takes just two minutes to complete and can be completely anonymous. It will give fresh insight into the obstacles faced and help give critical support to a demographic that faces unique challenges. Please consider sharing too. Thank you!

Based on an initial round table discussion, they are running the survey to look at the following:

  • 62% of graduates go back into closet at work. How does this translate for lesbians and bisexual women?
  • Are there enough senior out lesbian and bisexual women role models?
  • What are the unique challenges lesbians and bisexual women face at work?
  • What additional support can they offer?

    Please circulate the link to the survey across your networks, forward to your lesbian and bisexual female colleagues, and encourage your family and friends to share too. It’s critical the team get feedback to be able to publish findings and evaluate next steps in offering more support. The survey closes on 10th June.
