Sexism in the third sector.
As the #MeToo and #TimesUp movements gather momentum, and in light of the expose on the Presidents Club charity gala and allegations of sexual exploitation by international aid workers for Oxfam in Haiti, we feel that it is important for us to take an in-depth look at the third sector, and be proactive, not reactive to ensuring the safety and wellbeing of everyone in this sector.

We welcome ALL people responding to this, including people of all genders, sexualities and ethnicities. This is a survey on sexism, but we recognise that this is an intersectional issue.

We acknowledge that this is not merely a problem within our sector, but within society as a whole. Nonetheless, this research will help us understand the strengths and weaknesses of our own sector, a sector we are proud to be a part of, while ensuring it is open and safe for all people.

This research will contribute to research by trainees of Charityworks 2017 (, and influence a discussion on how to create a culture of confidence and solidarity within the third sector. This work, however, is separate and in addition to our individual job roles and the charity works scheme.

Press enquires should be sent to or tweet us @Is3rdSectSexist, as should any queries and complaints.
