As Europe's largest lesbian, gay, bi and trans (LGBT) charity, we know that people perform better when they can be themselves. That's why we created Diversity Champions, the leading employers' programme for ensuring all LGBT staff are accepted without exception in the workplace.
We work with over 700 organisations, all of whom share our core belief in the power of a workplace that is truly equal. Through them we've helped create inclusive and accepting environments for almost a quarter of the UK workforce.
Why become a Diversity Champion?
Unlock the potential of your staff
Create a workplace where LGBT staff can be themselves, driving performance, engagement and innovation.
Your dedicated account manager will:
- Share our library of research and best-practice guides
- Guide you through the Workplace Equality Index, the definitive benchmarking tool assessing your progress on LGBT equality
- Help plan your next steps with tailored feedback on your Index submission
- Review your policies to ensure they’re LGBT inclusive
The Stonewall Diversity Champions programme is an excellent framework for creating a workplace that enables LGBT staff to reach their full potential.
