1 in 5 LGBTQ+ people experience negative comments at work*, and 4 in 10 UK employees experience microagressions at work related to their identity**.
The British Red Cross discovered in their internal survey that 23% of survey respondents who identified as Black, Asian, mixed race or another ethnic minority group said they had been recently subjected to racial microaggressions at work. It also showed there was a lack of awareness in how best to respond to microaggressions. Having made important progress with their EDI strategy in recent years, the British Red Cross were keen to address this head on.
