Work, Inclusion and 2SLGBTQ+ people in Sudbury and Windsor

Work, Inclusion and 2SLGBTQ+ people in Sudbury and Windsor

A three year study about the work experiences of 2SLGBTQ+ people living in two of Ontario’s smaller cities found that just over 50% of people were not out in most situations at work and only 36% of workers were out to their employer.

This research, conducted in partnership with Unifor, United Steelworkers, the Sudbury Workers Education and Advocacy Centre and the Windsor Worker’s Education Centre found that 2SLGBTQ+ people living in smaller cities often have constrained employment options and have poor mental health resulting from unsupported workplaces.
