Manchester deemed one of the top employers for LGBT people
Stonewall has compiled a list of the top 100, in which both UoM and Man Met made the cut
Charity Stonewall has composed the list demonstrating the most inclusive employers for the LGBT community this year.
University of Manchester made the list at number 41 out of 100, for being one of the top employers of LGBT people.
Leading LGBT charity Stonewall compiled the top 100 list based on submissions to the Workplace Equality Index, a benchmarking tool which enables employers to ensure all lesbian, bi, gay and trans employees feel comfortable in their work place.
Universities such as Cardiff, Swansea, De Montfort, and both the University of Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan all ranked in the top 50.
“This is an extremely competitive list, which includes only 11 other universities. We will continue to do all that we can to reinforce our commitment to provide an inclusive, welcoming and productive working environment for all staff.” said the deputy Vice Chancellor of Cardiff University.
The director of human resources at Manchester said, “Manchester has done consistently well in the index, and this year we have been able to improve our position yet again. The result shows that the university is a welcoming place for staff members of all backgrounds and this is something we can all be justifiably proud of.”
Both the University of Manchester and Manchester Metropolitan have ensured that everyone has a shot at equal opportunity.
