This good practice guide is the fourth in a series of workplace guides from Stonewall, the UK’s leading lesbian and gay equality organisation.

This guide is a practical resource for organisations who want to provide opportunities for the effective career development of their lesbian and gay staff.

The guide examines the different ways employers can offer career development opportunities to lesbian and gay employees and why career development is valuable to both employees and employers. It also establishes what lessons can be learnt from career development opportunities that are in place for other groups, such as women and black and ethnic minorities.

The guide is based on in-depth research with organisations that are taking a range of steps to provide career development opportunities to their staff. Researchers interviewed nine different organisations working across a range of sectors. All nine are members of Stonewall’s Diversity Champions Programme.
