Breaking down barriers: Uncovering LGBTQIA+ discrimination in health and financial services


June is Pride Month, a time dedicated to recognising and celebrating the LGBTQIA+ community, and continuing to fight for equality.

This Pride Month, the Diversity and Inclusion Working Group (DIWG) has created a quiz to highlight the issues that LGBTQIA+ people continue to face within the health and financial services sectors. Our aim is to increase awareness of the ongoing discrimination LGBTQIA+ people face so that we can work towards a more inclusive future for all.

Please note that this quiz contains questions and information that may be upsetting for some readers. The sources used for this quiz are shared at the end of the quiz, and are based on surveys of LGBTQIA+ people, which may not be representative of individual experience.
