Hello. My name is Sara Baker. I’m a doctoral student in the Department of Communication Studies. I am currently doing a project that explores the experiences of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, or queer adults in the workplace.
In order to participate in this study you must meet the following criteria:
- Identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender, or queer,
- Be currently employed, and
- Be at least 25 years-old
If you agree to participate you will be asked to email me to set up a time and place to be interviewed. Interviews will be audio recorded, and I will ask you to answer a number of open-ended questions related to your experiences at work. All responses to these interview questions will be kept confidential and at no time will your identity be revealed in the analysis and or reporting of research results.
Participation in this study will require between 60 and 90 minutes of your time. Your participation is completely voluntary. At any time throughout the interview you may choose not to answer any question(s) and you are free to leave at any time that you do not feel comfortable.
If you are interested, please contact me at email@example.com.
Thanks for your consideration of involvement in this study.
