This research is an Australian Research Council funded project that aims to identify strategies to manage religious freedom and LGBT+ rights in the workplace. It focusses on government funded religiously affiliated workplaces.
The project combines empirical social research about workplace experiences and managerial practices with legal and philosophical analysis. The empirical research consists of two major national surveys, combined with long interviews with volunteer participants.
It will produce findings that organisations and policy makers can immediately use to guide their responses to religious freedom and LGBT+ rights. The research is the first major study of this kind in Australia.
The research is being run by researchers at the University of Tasmania in conjunction with the University of Sydney and University of Ottawa, Canada.
