Event Details

Spring to Equalities - the National Network of Equalities Networks (NNEN)  and the Skills Funding Agency webinars 2016

Join us on 8 March for: 

Pride and Prejudice in Education

In this session we will present the findings of the new report into the experiences of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT+) students and staff in further and higher education.

The report, Pride and Prejudice in Education (2016) is based on a survey of over 1,500 people and was produced by NUS in partnership with the Equality Challenge Unit, the Learning and Work Institute, the Skills Funding Agency, the University and College Union, and the Forum for Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Equality in Post-School Education.

The findings of this study show that more than half of those surveyed had experienced homophobic or transphobic abuse, with one in ten witnessing it every day. There is, therefore, much more to be done to ensure that learners and staff of all sexual orientations and gender identities are present as themselves in the places of learning and work.

This session will be facilitated by three members of the wider research team:

Seth Atkin, Equality Support Official, UCU and Chair of the Forum for Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Equality;
Charlotte Robey, Researcher, Learning and Work Institute, who provided guidance and support in survey development, finalising the report and worked on the high level analysis of the survey responses; and
Catina Barrett, Head of Inclusion, Learning and Work Institute. 

The Forum for Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Equality in Post-School Education is a community of practice consisting of national level strategic and member organisations (more details on www.sgforum.org.uk).
