AWEI and Ongoing Data Analysis

The AWEI Employee Survey, which accompanies the Australian Workplace Equality Index every year, is Australia’s richest source of annual and local data that focuses on both; LGBTQ inclusion initiatives and the impact of these initiatives on employees, regardless of how they identify. Participation in this optional employee survey has increased every year since it’s initial release.

To utilise this data, Pride in Diversity annually publishes a series of data materials, videos and blogs under the heading of AWEI PRACTICE POINTS. This helps to keep those within the Diversity & Inclusion profession informed and current in LGBTQ workplace inclusion. This data driven analysis and commentary would also be of immense value to network leaders, and those responsible for training within your organisation and executive.

You can view each of the Practice Points here on this page below or sign up to the Practice Points mailing list to ensure that you receive any data as it is released, direct to your email.

Are our Leaders Our Most Active Allies: Being an Active Ally in the Workplace

In the third edition of AWEI 2020 Practice Points, we discuss the importance of active allies as they have made a visibly positive difference to the sense of LGBTQ inclusion in the workplace. We also note why they differ from those who are passive allies.

The data also shows trends suggesting that the higher we move up traditional organisational hierarchies, the higher the likelihood of someone being an active ally. Likewise, this visibility decreases as we move down the same reporting lines.
