Construction News is seeking the views of UK contractor and cost consultant employees for a survey on attitudes towards lesbian, gay and bisexual employees in the construction sector.
A survey by CITB, shared with Construction News last year, found that sexist and homophobic language was regularly heard on sites.
Almost half (48 per cent) of workers said that they had heard homophobic language in the past year, while 13 per cent had heard it at least once a week.
Construction News has teamed up with sister titles Architects’ Journal and New Civil Engineer, along with gay, lesbian and bisexual charity Stonewall, to explore attitudes towards sexuality, including homophobia and workplace support.
The full survey results will be published in Q2 2015 in all three titles. AJ is gauging architects’ thoughts, while NCE is seeking the views of engineering consultants.
The anonymous survey is for employees of all genders and sexualities across the whole construction sector.
Please visit www.surveymonkey.com/s/attitudesinconstruction to take part in the survey.
