Lesbian, gay, bi and trans people bring value to organisations by providing a different set of experiences and perspectives. We help hundreds of organisations recognise the benefits of these perspectives for all employees, service users and members of the community.
We believe that people perform better when they can be themselves. That’s why we created Diversity Champions, Britain’s leading employers’ programme for ensuring all lesbian, gay, bi and trans 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, and through them we’ve helped create inclusive and accepting environments for almost a quarter of the UK workforce.
Our Global Diversity Champions programme is for international organisations that are committed to equality for their staff across the world.
Our work wouldn’t be possible without the support of our corporate partners.
Stonewall’s Education Champions programme provides bespoke support and guidance to local authorities to tackle homophobia, biphobia and transphobia in local schools and support LGBT young people in their community.
Homophobic, biphobic and transphobic (HBT) language and bullying are widespread in UK schools, affecting young people’s well-being as well as their attendance and attainment. Celebrating difference and tackling HBT bullying is crucial to making all children feel welcome, and enabling them to learn how to accept others for who they are.
Our Train the Trainer courses for Primary schools and Secondary schools give staff the tools to tackle HBT bullying, as well as the confidence to train colleagues in their school. After attending the course, your school joins our growing network of Stonewall School Champions.
We also provide Academy Trusts with tailored support and resources to help them develop a Trust-wide approach to tackling HBT bullying and language and create inclusive learning environments in their schools.
Initial Teacher training
We work with many ITT providers to train their trainee teachers to tackle homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying and language.
In partnership with Cardiff University, we developed a more inclusive health curriculum to make sure that our future health and care professionals are equipped to support LGBT patients. We’re interested in developing this work across more departments and with more institutions; please contact us if you would like to find out how we can support you.
