Take this survey and help a social work student with a project on LGBT+ discrimination in the workplace

Hi everyone,

I created an anonymous survey for my Social Work Class for Community Work with the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Community to kick off a group project about discrimination and comfortability in the workplace for LGBTQ+ people. I invite you to take part in the survey and please feel free to share it!
