WorkPride - Focus Panels for Communities: Bi-Inclusion

This series of community panels aims to explore the reality of some more misunderstood communities.

Our bi-sexual community is often misunderstood - asking people what being bi-sexual means to them is sure to yield a variety of answers. While some view the term as re-enforcing the gender binary, others apply a broader meaning. This panel aims to explore the reality of living as a bi-sexual and the challenges relating specifically to bi-inclusion.

Some key areas that will be explored are:

- What it means to be bi

- Experiences and challenges faced by our bisexual peers

- What can be done to support bi-inclusion, specifically in the workplace

    GSK
    I joined GSK in 2014 as a Laboratory Analyst in the Quality labs for one of the manufacturing sites, working on life-saving medication for cancer and HIV. I spent around 4 years in the lab, moving up to senior analyst before I joined the Quality Data Team, where I now work as a Senior Data Analyst, helping to keep our lab systems running as smoothly as possible. Outside of my day job, I'm an active member and leader of GSK's LGBTQ+ Employee Resource Group, Spectrum. I came out as Bi at work around 2017, and have been working with Spectrum ever since. I currently sit on the UK lead team of Spectrum as the Bi+ and Health & Wellbeing Leads. 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 a couple of years ago.
