Teresa's experience at work "There are times in life when everyone picks and chooses where, when and who they tell certain things to, and the workplace in particular is one of these. Most places I’ve worked in, people have pictures of their loved ones on their desk, drawings from their children and other mementos. Unlike most people, I have to think carefully about whether or not that’s something I want to share. Not because I’m embarrassed - because I’m not. But because some people seem to struggle with the idea that two people from the same sex can love each other."
Marcus's experience at work "I come alive when I’m presenting or pitching work to clients. It’s always been a strong suit of mine and something all employers have loved about me. After a successful pitch I feel on top of the world, and its usually at that point someone feels the need to fist bump me, call me brother, say things like “well done g”... And immediately I’m reminded of what they really think about me. No matter how hard I work or how successful I am, people put me in a box. They wouldn’t try and fist bump Mike our white 62 year old exec so why do they do it to me?"
Alex's interview experience "I know people look at me, I feel their eyes burning into me. Most of the time it doesn’t bother me, I hold my head up high, or ignore them. There are some days when it’s hard not to ignore it though. Interviewing for a new job is tough enough and the last thing I want is to be made to feel self-conscious. Some workspaces aren’t inclusive or friendly and I’m only interested in working with open-minded people who are more concerned about the work than what someone looks like."
Sarah's experience at work "It often feels like I’m invisible in the boardroom. I have to work twice as hard to be heard and seen, and even then I feel like I’m not being taken seriously. Many of my friends have had a similar experience in the workplace, as is often the case for most professional women. Sometimes women are locked out because they don’t want to participate in chest beating sports talk, it shouldn’t be that way. That’s why finding the right employer is key."
Sunil's job application experience "At the early stages of my career, I was unaware of corporate bias in recruitment processes. For me, having grown up in the UK, I was already accepted for who I am, however I started to grow more conscious of reasons I was not getting past the initial stages when applying for jobs. I started to look at myself closely and thought carefully about what could be giving me a disadvantage. This is when I started to change my name to Simon on my CV…an experiment I suppose. It was conclusive. Whenever I utilised Simon, doors opened, I received more positive responses to my applications. It’s interesting how a name can create an image in other people’s minds. And before you know it, they’ve judged your work ethic, your cultural makeup (stereotyping), your skillset, without ever having met you. Unfortunately, from my recent experiences, not much has changed."
Tyrese's interview experience "Finding a job as a disabled person is already difficult to begin with. There are few industries that are suitable for us and are open to hiring physically impaired people. When you do get an interview somewhere it's a big deal. I have to really plan my day, giving myself extra time to get there, finding the nearest station and whether or not it has step free access. Sometimes when I get there, there aren’t any ramps, lifts or level surfaces for me to get into the building. Why in the 21st century is it so hard to make things accessible to everyone?"
