Out & Equal Workplace Advocates, the premier nonprofit organization devoted to LGBT workplace equality, and the Bisexual Resource Center, an internationally respected voice for the bisexual community, are excited to announce the launch of a groundbreaking survey exploring the issues facing the bisexual community in the workplace.

Designed by corporate learning and development expert Heidi Bruins Green, the survey seeks to develop a better understanding of the workplace experiences of people who either identify as bisexual or one of the many alternate labels describing sexual and emotional attraction to more than one gender.

"We have found the lack of data on the bisexual community frustrating when trying to design programming responsive to the workplace issues faced by people who identify as bisexual," said Out & Equal Deputy Director Kevin Jones. "Out & Equal is grateful for the chance to be a part of this important study."

"While the term 'bisexual' is included in the acronyms most often used to describe the broad non heterosexual community (LGBT), people who identify as bisexual are often overlooked or excluded," said Ellyn Ruthstrom, President of the Bisexual Resource Center.

Preliminary data from the Institutional Review Board approved survey is anticipated in time to be presented at the 28th Annual BiCon and 10th Annual International Conference on Bisexuality from Aug. 27-30 in London. The feedback gathered from the international bisexual community at BiCon will be shared through a workshop presented during the 2010 Out & Equal Workplace Summit, set for Oct. 5-8 in Los Angeles.
