Survey on Bi Discrimination in the Workplace

Ahoy!

Here's a survey on the discrimination bi/pan/fluid individuals experience in employment spaces. Must be 18+ but not necessarily currently employed. Enjoy!

"Hello Everyone.

I'm conducting an online survey, with my co-author who is a psychology
professor, in order to find out more about bisexuals' experiences with employment discrimination. Please consider filling it out and also distributing the link. Both of us identify as bisexual. The survey is open to everyone over 18, regardless of geographic location.

My co-author, Karen Yescavage, is a psychology professor at Colorado
State University-Pueblo, and I'm a law professor at Hamline University in St. Paul. Karen and I put together this online survey to try to find out more about employment discrimination against bisexuals and others with fluid identities.

I got the idea for the survey after noticing that very few employment
discrimination cases alleging sexual orientation discrimination seem to be brought by bisexuals. I'm hoping that the survey will help explain why bisexuals don't seem to be pursuing cases and that it will ultimately add to society's understanding of the legal needs of bisexuals and other sexual minorities.

Please, please fill out the survey, whether or not you have ever
experienced employment discrimination. People who don't identify as bi are welcome to fill out the survey as well. We estimate that it will take about twenty to twenty-five minutes to fill out. The link is here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/LWJ93QJ. Also, please forward the link to anyone you think might be interested and also to people who may know others who could be interested.

If you would like a copy of the results of this study, please contact either Karen Yescavage at karen.yescavage@colostate-pueblo.edu or Ann Tweedy at atweedy01@hamline.edu. "
