City Hive, the women's network for the investment management industry, has launched its inaugural survey on financial firms' attitudes to tackling harassment in the workplace.
The group, which aims to unite, support and champion women at all levels of asset and investment management firms, has commissioned Herschel Advisory Limited (HAL) to conduct the anonymous Harassment in the City survey.
Its survey is designed to shed light on behaviour and attitudes towards harassment in the sector, and the measures companies are taking to support staff who believe they have been harassed.
The survey reflects City Hive's commitment to challenge conscious and unconscious gender bias in the industry, and to unite, support and champion women at all levels of their career.
City Hive founder, Bev Shah (pictured) said: "We want to dig a bit deeper than anecdotal evidence and we want the industry to address some of these issues, which we know can be swept under the carpet.
"This is an opportunity to identify the biggest areas of concern and work together to tackle them."
The survey, which comprises 30 multiple choice questions, is open to anyone working in the asset and investment management industry, regardless of gender.
HAL will collate and publish results once enough respondents have taken part to provide "good statistical depth".
