Sexual Harassment and Sexist Behaviour Survey

The Scottish Parliament commissioned a confidential survey of all those who work in Holyrood and constituency and regional offices to assess the extent to which sexual harassment and sexist behaviour is prevalent.

Progressive, the independent company which undertook the survey on our behalf, has now provided an analysis of the responses and a copy of its report can be found below.
