17 January 2013
The inclusiveness of UCL as an employer has again been
recognised in this year's Stonewall Workplace Equality Index (WEI).
for the second time in as many years, been acknowledged as one of the country's
Top 100 gay-friendly employers.
Encouragingly, UCL has moved up 30 places in
the index this year and is now ranked as the 53rd best employer for Lesbian,
Gay, and Bisexual staff. This is a great achievement for UCL, as it is one of
only six universities in the Index and is the result of the hard work of our
LGBT Equality Group in partnership with the Equalities and Diversity Team.
Sir Stephen Wall, Chair of UCL Council & the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) Equality Champion, has reaffirmed his support for this initiative: "At UCL, we are delivering on our commitment to be one of the best employers for LGBT staff. We have won the laurels. I promise you we will not rest on them".
