Construction News launches 2016 LGBT+ survey

Construction News has launched a survey to investigate the industry’s attitudes towards LGBT+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender) people.

Last year, we revealed that just 7 per cent of LGB employees within the industry would recommend construction as a ‘great place to work’, with over two-thirds of staff reporting having hears offensive or homophobic comments.

This year is the first time that transgender people have been included in the survey.

We want to hear whether attitudes have improved in the industry in the last year.

Is the industry inclusive or exclusive when it comes to its LGBT+ workforce? Does it discriminate against sexuality and gender?

We want to hear from you.

Take our survey which is open to contractors, consultants, property professionals, engineers, surveyors, students and architects.

The data will be used in both print and online articles and will provide an insight into how the industry treats its LGBT+ employees.

Fill out the survey here:

This survey is being run in collaboration with CN’s sister titles, the Architects’ Journal and New Civil Engineer
