There are eight organisations which Stonewall celebrates as Star Performers – leaders in their sectors, and pioneers in their approach to equality.
The Stonewall Star Performers are Accenture, Barclays, EY, Gentoo, Goldman Sachs, Home Office, Nottinghamshire Healthcare NHS Foundation Trust and Simmons & Simmons.
They have all consistently topped the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index, and graduated out of the Top 100 list in 2013.
Since then, Stonewall has been working with them on a set of strategic goals. In addition, each organisation actively mentors another employer that is working to create a workplace culture inclusive of lesbian, gay, bi and trans people. Through regular contact, the two organisations develop strategies to transform workplace cultures.
This year, Stonewall asked each of the Star Performers to share what they have learned, in the form of a best-practice guide on a topic where they have shown significant progress.
Ranging from working in India to embedding equality in procurement, the guides they produced give other employers a practical insight into transformative good practice.
