Research Launch: Where are all the LGBTI women at work

2018 08 08 WhereAreTheWomen

The low visibility and engagement of same‑sex attracted women in the workplace has been the subject of extensive research and analysis by PwC and Pride in Diversity, with key findings and practical initiatives outlined in a new report.

The report entitled "Where are all the women," surveyed over 1200 women across 18 different sectors and locations across Australia. 

Amongst the key findings, the report identified that younger same-sex attracted women were less likely to be out in the workplace and were less likely to come out immediately after joining a new workplace.

An overwhelming majority of respondents believed that both gender and sexuality impacted their career progression.

The report provides five key themes associated with greater inclusion lf LGBTI women, and practical actions that can be implemented in any sector.

"This substantial piece of work is essential reading for senior leaders involved in their people, culture and talent," said a spokesperson from Pride in Diversity.

"It provides a road map for employers of all sizes and industries to consider specific and proactive initiatives to create an inclusive culture," 

The outcomes of the research will be share with Pride in Diversity member organisations including the Department of Defence during discussion at roundtables and events over the coming months.

The upcoming Military Pride Ball is proudly supported by PwC, a platinum tier sponsor. Pride in Diversity are a gold tier sponsor who proudly support the LGBTI Awards for Excellence that are presented during the evening.
