Stonewall workplace equality index

Stonewall’s Diversity Champions programme is Britain’s leading best-practice employers' forum for sexual orientation and gender identity equality, diversity and inclusion. Keele are proud to display the Stonewall Diversity Champions logo in our internal and external messaging to demonstrate our clear commitment to LGBT equality.

Workplace Equality Index (WEI)

Since 2015, Keele has committed to taking part in the annual Workplace Equality Index (WEI). The WEI is a powerful evidence-based benchmarking tool used by employers to assess their achievements and progress on lesbian, gay, bi and trans (LGBT) equality in the workplace. Questions are split across different sections – employee policy, the employee lifecycle, staff network groups, allies and role models, senior leadership, monitoring, procurement, and customers, service users and clients. 

Each year all staff, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity, are asked to participate in a survey- please support our application by completing the survey which launches each summer.

Keele's WEI 2022 Results

In early 2022 we received the results of our last WEI submission. Keele has been ranked 144 out of 403 employers and we are proud to have received a Gold award, for the work of our staff in advancing LGBTQ+ equality.
