University soars up Workplace Equality ranking
(9 February 2018)
The University has gone up from 41st to 16th in the UK and has been named as one of the country’s top ten trans employers in the latest Stonewall Workplace Equality Index – an annual audit of workplace culture for lesbian, gay, bi and trans staff.
Run by Stonewall, the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights charity, the Workplace Equality Index is free to enter for any employer and 434 employers submitted entries to the 2018 Index, across the public, private and third sectors.
As part of the Index there is a staff feedback questionnaire that participating employers can ask their staff to complete. This year Stonewall received over 92,000 responses to the staff survey making it one of the largest national employment surveys in Britain.
