The Workplace Equality Index is Britain's leading tool for employers to measure their efforts to tackle discrimination and create inclusive workplaces for lesbian, gay and bisexual employees. Since 2005, more than 750 major employers have taken part in the Index using Stonewall's criteria as a model for good practice.

The submission form for the Workplace Equality Index 2014 is now available to download. This form can be shared among colleagues and is compatible with all versions of Microsoft Word from 2003 onwards.

Members of the Diversity Champions programme will be sent an email containing their username and password to access the secure website. If your organisation is not a member of the Diversity Champions programme and you would like to make a submission to the Workplace Equality Index, please contact the Stonewall Workplace team at workplace@stonewallcymru.org.uk to register for a username and password.

To supplement evidence submitted by employers, Stonewall seeks feedback directly from the entrants’ LGB employees. The results of this questionnaire are worth five per cent of the total available marks.

Stonewall has also set additional criteria for global employers to recognise the support they offer for their LGB employees worldwide. This optional section is suitable for completion by global employers operating in ten or more countries worldwide.
