This good practice guide is the sixth in a series from Stonewall, Britain’s lesbian, gay and bisexual charity.
It provides a practical resource for organisations that want to know more about the issues bisexual people face in the workplace and want to include bisexual employees in their diversity initiatives. The Employment Equality (Sexual Orientation) Regulations 2003 define bisexuality as a sexual orientation towards persons of the same sex and of the opposite sex. The guide is based on research and interviews commissioned by Stonewall into the experience of bisexual men and women from a range of sectors who are employed by over 500 major employers that are part of Stonewall’s Diversity Champions programme – Britain’s employers’ forum on sexual orientation.
The guide includes a summary of the findings. It details the experiences and main issues faced by bisexual employees in large organisations and offers suggestions about what bisexual employees would like to see from their employers. It also offers advice on how to develop good practice in this area.
