Birmingham Uni named one of Stonewall’s most ‘gay-friendly’ employers
We came 50th in their top 100 list
The University of Birmingham has been ranked the 50th best employer for lesbian, gay and bisexual employees in Stonewall’s 2016 list of the most inclusive workplaces in the country.
The list is created using the Workplace Equality Index which encourages employers to create inclusive work environments.
This puts Birmingham in the top five educational organisations just below Cardiff, Swansea, and Teeside Universities and above the likes of Manchester University.
Birmingham City Council charted 28th in the rankings too.
The 2016 index is the first list to examine and include trans-inclusive policies, as well as criteria for gender identity and sexuality.
Over 400 organisations were included in the index and 60,506 employees were surveyed for the list.
Stonewall acknowledges that experiences of workplace equality can vary a lot depending on geography, but this list only includes UK employers and is a testament to the inclusivity of our city.
