AUTHENTICITY AT WORK
The importance of being yourself at work
June 2019 | Report
Equality Group has commissioned nationally representative research* building on the work of the Stonewall report, which discovered that:
• More than a third of LGBT staff (35 per cent) have hidden that they areLGBT at work for fear of discrimination.
• One in ten black, Asian and minority ethnic LGBT employees (10 per cent) have been physically attacked by customers or colleagues in the last year.
• Nearly two in five bi people (38 per cent) aren’t out to anyone at work.
The survey conducted by Equality Group is trying to further understand how unconscious bias, workplace culture and management ability effect the career experience of the LGBTQ+ community.
