Diversity & Inclusion

This invitation-only event launches Business in the Community's 2019 research on Mental Health at Work in Wales.
This webinar is an opportunity to learn how businesses can support women in the workplace transitioning through menopause, and hear case studies of policies and practices adopted by the organisations leading the way.
Join Business in the Community (BITC) Scotland and special guest speaker, Lauren Chiren of Women of a Certain Stage, to find out how you can ensure your business is ready, willing and able to support women experiencing menopause. 
LGBT+ people make up between 2-5% of the population of the UK but are still experiencing high levels of discrimination in the workplace and significant inequalities, especially around mental health and wellbeing.
Working with Pride combines insights from two of BITC’s flagship studies (Mental Health at Work and Equal Lives) produced in partnership with Mercer Marsh and Santander, to shine a light on the issues facing LGBT+ people in the workplace. The report finds that:
Nearly three-quarters of LGBT+ people said that they had experienced mental health problems relating to work (74%)
Experience of mental health issues was a third higher among LGBT+ employees
Younger LGBT+ employees were found to be particularly vulnerable
Gay & bi+ employees are not accessing carers’ support as much as their colleagues
Based on the findings in this report we have made three core recommendations for businesses to act upon: Recognise, Respond and Role Model.
