Researchers look into employment experiences of transgender people

Do you identify as trans or gender diverse?

Researchers at Curtin University are conducting a nationwide survey investigating the employment experiences of gender diverse people and how this affects their health and wellbeing.

The research is being led by Matthew Roberts, who is currently undertaking a PhD at Curtin. Matthew is a practicing psychologist who works with gender diverse people on an individual level and is passionate about conducting this research to highlight some of the fundamental difficulties gender diverse people face, and how these can potentially be addressed on a larger policy scale.

To participate you will need to:

  1. Live in Australia
  2. Be aged 18 years or older
  3. Identify under the umbrella of trans or gender diverse
  4. Have experience trying to obtain employment and/or experiences within employment

What are you being invited to do?

You are being invited to participate in a nation-wide survey which aims to highlight the experiences gender diverse people have obtaining and within employment.

You are invited to provide your own voice and unique experiences around employment as a gender diverse individual and how these have affected your health and wellbeing.
