What is Stonewall and the Workplace Equality Index?

Stonewall is Europe's largest Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans (LGBT) charity. It supports and empowers LGBT people to be who they are across society.

The charity's Workplace Equality Index ranks a large number of private and public organisations, including Universities, on how inclusive they are as employers of LGBT people. Stonewall also helps organisations become more inclusive, to ensure that all LGBT staff are accepted without exception in the workplace.

Stonewall and Kingston

Kingston recently signed up to Stonewall's Diversity Champions Programme, a scheme that works with institutions to create inclusive and accepting cultures.

The programme helps employers develop structured and systematic policies and practices to embed inclusion across the entire organisation. It will help us identify where we're doing well and where we can improve.

Importantly, it shows our commitment to supporting lesbian, gay, bi and trans staff in the workplace and beyond.

Our membership also allows us access to:

  • Training & Development
  • Resources, research and guidance
  • Conferences & Networks
  • Opportunity to submit to the Work Equality Index
