Are you a BME women? We want to hear about your experiences of work in Scotland.

Close the Gap is developing a research project on black and minority ethnic (BME) women’s experiences of work in Scotland. As part of this work, we’re looking for BME women to participate in focus groups which will discuss your experiences of the workplace.

We want to hear about any barriers you’ve experienced in entering or progressing in the workplace, and what you think needs to be done to realise equality for BME women at work.

The focus groups are free to attend, and refreshments will be provided.

We can provide travel costs and an interpreter if needed, and support for childcare costs is available. Please let us know your needs when you book. The venue is accessible.

If you are unable to participate in the focus groups but would still like to share your experiences Close the Gap will also be conducting a survey after the focus groups have taken place. Please email if you would like to participate in the survey.
