The organizers of the British LGBT Awards are appealing for women to take part in a survey they are conducting into the needs of lesbians and bisexual women in the workplace.
The survey is being launched partly in response to the fact that just 8% of the nominations for this year’s awards were submitted from lesbian and bisexual women.
Although half the awards cover celebrity and entertainment categories, the rest were corporate and workplace categories – recognizing LGBTI and straight allies and employee networks.
Winners at this year’s event, which took place 13 May in Covent Garden, included Lloyds Banking Group’s Rainbow LGBT Network group, Flt Lt Ayla Holdom (LGBT Inspirational Role Model) and YouTuber vloggers Rose and Rosie (Celebrity Rising Star).
