Thames Water had a Huge Boost in Stonewall's Workplace Equality Index
Congratulations to our friends Thames Water for their record high ranking in the 2020 Stonewall Workplace Equality Index!
Thames Water has received further recognition from LGBT+ charity Stonewall for its commitment to lesbian, gay, bi and trans inclusion in the workplace.
Each year the charity produces a ‘workplace equality index’ which lists the top performing firms in the UK. Thames Water - already a Stonewall Diversity Champion for ensuring all staff are accepted without exception - was ranked 302 last year. This year it has shot up 113 places to 189th.
Jenny Jones, who leads Thames Water’s LGBT+ and Allies network, said: “I’m really proud of all the work we’ve done over the past 12 months since I stepped up as chair of the network to celebrate diversity and inclusion within our workforce. We’re delighted to receive this recognition from Stonewall for our contribution towards building an inclusive and welcoming environment at Thames Water where everyone can feel encouraged and accepted to be themselves.”
