Star Performers

Developing best practice to support lesbian, gay, bi and trans staff

The Stonewall Star Performers programme brings together top-performing organisations that have consistently demonstrated exemplary practice to support lesbian, gay, bi and trans staff.

The Stonewall Star Performers – Accenture, Barclays, EY, Gentoo, Goldman Sachs, Home Office, Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust and Simmons & Simmons – work with Stonewall to develop best practice in the UK and beyond.

Star Performers actively mentor another employer that is working to create a workplace culture inclusive of LGBT people. Through regular contact, the two organisations develop strategies to transform workplace cultures.

Additionally, each year we challenge our Star Performers to find new and innovative ways to advance LGBT equality. This year, we asked each of them to share what they have learned, in the form of a best-practice guide on a topic where they have shown significant progress.


These guides give you practical advice on how to create a more inclusive workplace for your staff and stakeholders. We are proud to share with you the following eight guides:

Accenture: Engaging the Majority to Create an LGBT Inclusive Workplace

Barclays: An LGBT Inclusion Journey - Sharing Effective Strategies for Success In India

EY: Driving LGBT Workplace Equality Across Multiple Locations

Gentoo: Inclusivity Without the Cost

Goldman Sachs: Lead from the Top - The Importance of Engaging Senior Allies

Home Office: Unlocking the Power of Employee Resource Groups

Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust: Leadership in Trans Equality

Simmons & Simmons: Embedding LGBT Equality into Procurement Practices and Supply Chain Management
