LGBTQIA+ in the workplace: where are we today?

by Dr Tabea Hässler (University of Zurich, Swiss LGBTIQ+ Panel), Dr Léïla Eisner (University of Lausanne, Swiss LGBTIQ+ Panel), Natalie Lerch-Pieper (Paul Scherrer Institute)




On the occasion of Pride Month, the research institutes PSI, Empa, Eawag and WSL have invited the project holders of the Swiss LGBTIQ+ Panel. The researchers of the largest LGBTIAQ+ study in Switzerland, Dr. Tabea Hässler and Dr. Léïla Eisner will show how the situation of LGBTQIA+ people in Switzerland is perceived while addressing current challenges around coming-out and the workplace. In their ongoing survey the researchers are additionally investigating the challenges faced by LGBTQIA+ people in academic institutions. The questionnaire is not aimed exclusively at people in the LGBTIAQ+ community, but also at (cis-)heterosexual people.

The event will take place on Friday, June 24 from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. via Zoom and is open to all employees of the research institutes PSI, Empa, Eawag and WSL.

Event schedule:
1. Short introduction by Natalie Lerch-Pieper
2. Presentation by Dr. Hässler and Dr. Eisner
3. Open panel for questions from the hosts and audience
