Ethnic minorities, people with disabilities most likely to face workplace discrimination: Aware poll

Ethnic minorities, people with disabilities most likely to face workplace discrimination: Aware poll
Ethnic minorities are most likely to face workplace discrimination, followed by those with disabilities, those of the LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer) community, and then women, a survey found.

Ethnic minorities (89 per cent) were more vulnerable to discrimination at work compared to those of the majority race (44 per cent). 

And overall, in the past five years, around one in two Singaporeans experienced workplace discrimination.

These findings came out of a survey done last month by the Association of Women for Action and Research (Aware) and consumer research company Milieu Insight, which polled 1,000 respondents on their experiences with workplace discrimination in the past five years.

The respondents are nationally representative by age, gender and race, Aware said in a press release on Tuesday (Sept 20).
