Bis at work

Bi Wales have begun a UK-wide consultation on the experiences of bis in the workplace, and are looking for your thoughts and experiences, whether of good practice or of bad.

The following piece appeared in issue 88 of Bi Community News:

Before the launch event Bi Wales were approached by a major employer for advice and guidance on dealing with biphobia in the workplace and improving life for Bi people at work, particularly in relation to sexual orientation monitoring. At the launch event we started a consultation on bi inclusion in the workplace and what employers can do to ensure their workplace is bi inclusive and friendly. This is an ongoing piece of work based around the questions
– what would make you feel comfortable and uncomfortable being bi at work and/or coming out as bi in the workplace?
– What can employers do to improve bisexual inclusion and deal with bisexual issues in the work place?
– And what role do staff LGBT networks have to play in bi inclusion in the workplace?

Bi Wales are looking for opinions from more people on this issue, and due to the interesting range of issues raised by this enquiry, would like to open this up into a UK wide consultation. If you have any opinions at all on this issue please email Bi Wales: bicymru@yahoo.co.uk. Please state whether you live in Wales for our information.
