Research Participation Invitation on LGBTQ+ Work and Health in Texas
This email message is an approved request for participation in research that has been approved by the Texas State Institutional Review Board (IRB).
Dr. Elizabeth K. Eger, an Assistant Professor at Texas State University, and her student research assistants are conducting a research study to learn about the work and health experiences of LGBTQ+ Texans. We are examining the work and health histories of LGBTQ+ Texans, exploring their memorable experiences of how their sexuality and/or gender identities impact their work experiences, and investigating how work and health experiences overlap and are tied to multiple identities and experiences like race, disability, class, and more.
You are being asked to complete a questionnaire to understand your organizational and health communication experiences as an LGBTQ+ Texan. Participation is voluntary, and your questionnaire results will be confidential. The questionnaire will take approximately 20 minutes to complete. You must be at least 18 years old to take this questionnaire, live in the state of Texas, identify as LGBTQ+, and have worked at least 1 month since March 2020.
Please note, in the questionnaire, we will ask for the specific language you use to describe your sex, gender identity, and sexuality identities and experiences. By LGBTQ+, we mean are you a part of queer, trans, and/or intersex communities. Also, work can be part-time, temporary, caregiving, and any form of work. You do not need to be currently employed or a U.S. citizen to complete this survey.
10 participants who complete the questionnaire will receive a $10 gift card through a random drawing. Additionally, participants will be asked if they are willing to complete a follow-up Zoom (or in-person) interview (75-90 minutes) and drawing activity (10-minutes). If you are chosen for the interview and drawing activity, all selected interview participants will receive a $40 gift card.
If you would like to complete the questionnaire, please visit: https://bit.ly/LGBTQTexansWork.
