I work in industry, have since graduation, and a lot of it felt very academia-biased. Since I also work in a company with less than 20 employees, the idea that we might have HR, let alone HR policies... that doesn't apply. But I ground through it, fearing that my responses might taint the result though.

Nothing in the survey would detect the gap between the religious homophobe I worked for and the overtly inclusive company owners (neither usually have policies or explicit supports).

It made answering the survey tricky, but tweaking it to cover that stuff would make the survey denser and longer. Even just adding "no policies" or "no HR" to the relevant questions would help, so you can distinguish between the lack of a positive "we have policies, but not on this" and a complete negative "we have no policies". My current employer, for example, has no policies on anything to do with HR except in the very general sense of "we try to obey the law".

Nothing in Biology Makes Sense: Why evolutionary biologists are getting excited about pot
Photo by Diego Charlón Sánchez . This week at Nothing in Biology Makes Sense! , guest contributor Daniela Vergara explains how CGRI , the initiative to sequence the genome-wide genetic variation of Cannabis , will answer cool evolutionary questions . At the...
At the CGRI, we would like to understand first, how much genetic variation there is in the numerous pure C. sativa, C. indica, and C. ruderalis accessions and heirloom varieties. This will lead us to understand the relationships among the major lineages within the genus, the spread of Cannabis ...
