“By being who I am I’ve been able to channel my energies into what matters. I don’t have to maintain a façade that is self-defeating and attacks my integrity.”

Paul Newby

“Having lesbian, gay and bisexual role models is very important. It shows others you can be who you are.”

Sarah Weir OBE

What is the Role Models Programme?

Stonewall, and hundreds of leading employers across the UK, understand that people perform better when they can be themselves and at Stonewall, we know exactly how important role models are to our sense of self. This one day programme, for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender staff at all levels in an organisation, is designed to help you think about what it means to be authentic in the workplace and how you can be a more effective role model.

Programme aim

To promote increased visibility of LGBT role models, seen to take an active role as change agents in the workplace

The objectives of the programme are

  • For you to develop an understanding of what it means to be authentic in the workplace
  • For you to develop an understanding of what it means for them to be an LGBT role model in the workplace
  • For you to identify achievable ways to step up as an LGBT role model in the workplace

Despite the  confidence of some prominent lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender business leaders and public servants in being open about their sexual orientation or gender identity, LGBT people remain under-represented at every level in many organisations. Numerous employers are now focusing on the career development and ambitions of their lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender staff. This one day programme provides a unique opportunity to work with other lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender staff to explore these themes.
