Event description
Following our diversity Spirit Beat results, the goal of this focus group is to identify how we can better support our LGBT+ colleagues

About this event

As you know, our Spirit Beat survey gave us the opportunity to identify as LGBT+.  While all the data is completely anonymous, the results tell us that the scores for those who identified as LGBT+ have decreased in a number of areas including engagement, belonging and experiencing positive emotions compared to the company scores. 

Research tells us that many minority groups – including our LGBT+ community - have been disproportionately impacted by the pandemic, and they can experience the effects of lockdown more harshly.  So, while we know the external environment is having a negative impact, we cannot assume that this is the only reason for the decline in the Spirit Beat scores for our LGBT+ community.  We also cannot assume that we understand what it’s like to walk in others’ shoes, so we would really value the support of our LGBT+ colleagues and friends to help us understand what we can do to better support you and drive meaningful change.

You can do this in 2 ways;

Come along to one of 2 focus groups taking place on 12th & 20th May.

Answer a confidential questionnaire which you can find in the email from Ciaran Barrett.
