New knowledge about the working environment for LGBTQI people: How can higher education institutions show their true colors and become more inclusive?

Pride House, Tue 2 Aug 1:00 PM–2:15 PM

* THIS SEMINAR WILL BE HELD IN ENGLISH *

Academic Pride, which is a collaboration around Stockholm Pride between several of Stockholm’s higher education institutions and their associated student unions, has invited researchers Andrea Eriksson and Carin Hellström from the KTH Royal Institute of Technology to present a new report on LGBTQ people’s organizational and social work environment.

The report has been produced on behalf of the Swedish Agency for Work Environment Expertise (Myndigheten för arbetsmiljökunskap). It discusses the following questions:

• What factors are particularly characteristic of the work environment for LGBTQ people?
• What main work environment risks have been identified? What are the health factors?
• How does the work environment situation differ for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer people? Are there common points of contact?
• What characterizes an inclusive workplace; that is, where the work environment for LGBTQ people is perceived to be good?

We conclude with a joint discussion on how our universities can work for more inclusive work and study environments for LGBTQIA+ people. How do higher education institutions work with these issues today and what more needs to be done?

About Academic Pride
Academic Pride is a collaboration around Stockholm Pride between several of Stockholm’s higher education institutions and their associated student unions.
