The report, Pride and Prejudice in Education< (2016) is based on a survey of over 1,500 people and was produced by NUS in partnership with the Equalitydefinition Challenge Unit, the Learning and Work Institute, the Skills Funding Agency, the University and College Union, and the Forum for Sexual Orientation and Genderdefinition Identity Equality in Post-School Education.

The findings of this study< show that more than half of those surveyed had experienced homophobic or transphobic abuse, with one in ten witnessing it every day. There is, therefore, much more to be done to ensure that learners and staff of all sexual orientations and gender identities are present as themselves in the places of learning and work.

The webinar will be facilitated by three members of the wider research team:

Seth Atkin, Equality Support Official, UCUdefinition and Chair of the Forum for Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Equality;
Charlotte Robey, Researcher, Learning and Work Institute, who provided guidance and support in survey development, finalising the report and worked on the high level analysis of the survey responses; and
Catina Barrett, Head of Inclusion, Learning and Work Institute.
