Stonewall Workplace Equality Index - 17/2/23
Cardiff University did not submit to the last round of the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index, which is why we are not featured in this year’s list.
This was an active decision taken at a time where we are refreshing our structures and processes for equality, diversity and inclusion. This has allowed us to take stock of where we are in relation to LGBTQ+ equality in the organisation, and to look at what we need to do next to take forward our priorities.
Given current timescales, we are still considering whether we can submit an application to the next round.
We recognise the valuable role Stonewall plays in supporting us to develop policies and practices that help our LGBTQ+ community know they are welcome and valued. Cardiff University remains a member of Stonewall Diversity Champions. Our commitment to the LGBTQ+ community is longstanding and non-negotiable and we are proud to have been regularly recognised over many years as being one of the leading employers in the UK for members of the LGBTQ+ community.
We're committed to ensuring we are an inclusive environment for LGBTQ+ learners, students and staff.
