As a Stonewall Diversity Champion, we are committed to ensuring that the University is an inclusive environment for lesbian gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) staff and students. The Index helps us track progress made over the past year on promoting LGBT equality at Reading, and helps identify areas that can be further improved. 

Although focused on LGBT equality, all colleagues are invited to take part. The survey provides us with a ‘temperature check’ of the attitudes and opinions towards LGBT inclusion at the University. 

Why is the Index important?

The Index provides us with an opportunity to demonstrate and review the progress we have made over the past 12 months. The survey forms an important part of our performance review - we can measure our actions against feedback from colleagues, and use recurring themes or trends to influence our practices in the future. 

Our targets and progress to date

In February 2016, we announced that Reading aims to become a Stonewall ‘Top 50’ employer by 2020. We are currently ranked 168 out of the 439 employers that applied for this scheme - a major improvement on 2016 when we were ranked 204 out of 415 employers.

Over the last 12 months, we have joined forces with RUSU and our LGBT Plus staff network to progress our plans for enhancing LGBT equality and inclusion across the University. Highlights have included:  

If you have any questions about the University's participation in the Workplace Equality Index, please contact Simon Chandler-Wilde, Dean for Diversity and Inclusion.
