The House of Commons has received its result in the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index for 2015 and we are delighted to inform you that we have risen 29 places to rank 126th out of 397 participating employers.
The Workplace Equality Index is an effective way to measure efforts to tackle discrimination and create an inclusive workplace for lesbian, gay and bisexual employees. Since 2005, more than 800 major employers have taken part in the Index using Stonewall’s criteria as a model for good practice. Stonewall revises the Index criteria every three years.
ParliOUT members are thanked for completing the anonymous survey, as well as their contribution to making parliament a more inclusive employer and service provider. We still have a lot of work to do but this proves that we continue to move in the right direction.
Anne Foster, Head of Diversity and Inclusion.
