What you can do

Diversity Champions programme

Stonewall’s Diversity Champions programme is Britain’s leading best-practice employers' forum for sexual orientation and gender identity equality, diversity and inclusion. 

We currently work with 750 members across public, private and third sectors to help them create inclusive and accepting environments for almost a quarter of the UK workforce.
