City firm tops Stonewall list
International law firm Clifford Chance has topped this year’s Stonewall UK Workplace Equality Index by building on their support for their LGDTQ+ staff and promoting LGBTQ+ diversity and equality throughout the country.
The Workplace Equality Index is marked by experts in the field of LGBTQ+ workplace equality, and is based on nine individual criteria including an employer’s policies and benefits for LGBTQ+ staff, diversity monitoring, the individual empowerment, and network groups supporting LGBTQ+ employees.
It covers a wide range of employers in public, private and third sectors, working across industries including construction, retail and healthcare.
Making its first appearance in the list is professional services firm Arup came second, followed by Victim Support, the national charity supporting people affected by crime and traumatic events.
Also featuring in the top ten are the NHS Business Services Authority, the Cheshire Fire and Rescue Service and financial consultants KPMG.
