In October 2017 Stonewall and The Rainbow Project announced a formal partnership, joining forces with the aim to support LGBT-inclusive employers in Northern Ireland.
In April 2018 this work will reach an important milestone as we will launch Stonewall’s Diversity Champions Programme in the region, offering resources, expertise and opportunities for employers to feel equipped and empowered to create truly inclusive workplace environments.
Recent studies have shown that a significant proportion of millennials will assess the diversity and inclusion work of an organisation before applying for a job with them. We also know that people perform better when they can be themselves at work; the Diversity Champions programme provides a framework for employers to unlock that potential.
By working with employers locally across Northern Ireland we hope to shape workplaces and the workforce in a way which values LGBT staff, attracts diverse talent and helps to increase the pace of change for LGBT people in Northern Ireland by championing acceptance without exception.
