Equality in the Workplace Makes Good Business Sense; Inclusive Workplaces Not Only Make People Feel More Comfortable They Can Often Be More Productive. Liz Morgan, Director of Stonewall Cymru, Explains Why Strong Diversity Policies Make Good Business Sense Stonewall DIVERSITY CHAMPION


Lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) people are enjoying greater protection from discrimination and harassment in the workplace than ever before. Not only are gay staff becoming more aware of their rights, but those who are looking for jobs are seeking out employers who demonstrate a commitment to workplace equality.

Stonewall Cymru's Counted In! report, the largest survey of LGB people living in Wales, found that nearly one third of lesbian and gay people are attracted to employers with a good record on equality and diversity. More than 50 per cent said that having an equal opportunities policy would influence their choice of employer Staff who feel their employer promotes an inclusive culture tend to feel more comfortable at work which, in turn, makes them happier and more productive. In our experience, more people - both gay and straight - simply don't want to work for organisations that permit any kind of discrimination.

Many employers now understand that to attract and retain the best workforce means developing clear diversity policies and practices. For that purpose we run an employers' forum called Diversity Champions Cymru. Stonewall now works with more than 15 major employers in Wales, through our Diversity Champions Cymru employment programme.
