Findings show just how far the industry has to go to be inclusive for all; of the 1,045 respondents, 9 per cent had overheard ‘gay’ being used as an insult in the workplace and 28 per cent of LGBT+ respondents had an offensive or inappropriate comment made about their gender or sexuality in the workplace over the previous year. Interestingly, some industry stakeholders took to twitter etc to criticise Construction News for even undertaking this research.
We want to ensure you that the School will continue to provide the highest quality learning to you amidst the Coronavirus outbreak. We will continue to do this by changing the format of our face to face activities (workshops, full and half day supplier briefings, meetings) and broadcasting them remotely via a webinar forma (or similar alternative). We hope you find this move reassuring so that you can still access all of our free training in a safe environment.
We are continuing to monitor the situation as it evolves and will adjust our approach accordingly so please keep an eye out for our emails and on our website.
