Stonewall Workplace Equality Index

Stonewall Top 100 Employer logo

Stonewall is Europe’s largest lesbian, gay, bi and trans (LGBT) charity and the University of Oxford is proud to be part of its Diversity Champion Programme. This is an employers' programme which works to ensure all LGBT staff are accepted without exception in the workplace.

The University makes a yearly submission to the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index, a powerful evidence-based benchmarking tool to assess an organisation’s work on LGBT equality against Stonewall’s best practice and others in the sector. We are delighted to announce that the University is now one of Stonewall’s Top 100 Employers.

Stonewall is a recognised brand and we encourage all departments to use the logo in all recruitment and communications. For more information contact:

The University, in partnership with the LGBT+ Advisory Group, has worked hard over the past five years to meet its objectives on LGBT+ equality – continuing to  strengthen our policies and practices to ensure we can be truly inclusive. We are incredibly proud of this recent achievement and would like to take this opportunity to thank all those involved who have helped on this journey including the LGBT+ Role Models, LGBT+ Allies, the LGBT+ Staff Network and the wider University community.
