    I'm Sanchia. I've been working with GSK for nearly 6 years. I started off in the Quality labs as a lab analyst and moved up to senior analyst before I joined the Quality Data Team. As part of these roles, I have had experience with lab work, batch approval, investigations, and data system set up. I'm super passionate about equality for women and LGBTQ+ people. I identify as Bi and have been out at work for around 3 years or so. I sit on the leadership team of GSK's LGBTQ+ employee resource group and the site committee for the disability confidence employee resource group. My aims are to make talking about things such as LGBTQ+ and hidden disabilities part of everyday conversation, and to reduce the stigma bisexual people face and combat bi-erasure. Feel free to message me if you want to talk/have ideas about how to improve Bi+ resources for companies, or anything to do with Health and Wellbeing of LGBTQ+ folk. https://www.mygwork.com/en/my-g-news/my-hope-for-the-future-is-that-mental-health-becomes-a-natural-part-of-conversation-an-interview-with-sanchia-constance This is a piece I wrote for Mental Health Awareness Week.
