The British Army secures another year in the Stonewall Top 100 Index

Stonewall Top 100 Employer 2019The Stonewall Workplace Equality Index 2019 is the definitive benchmarking tool for employers to measure their progress on lesbian, gay, bi and trans inclusion in the workplace – and The British Army has once again secured a place in the Top 100 Employers at 51st position.

Now in its fifteenth year, Ruth Hunt, Chief Executive of Stonewall states ‘the list of over 400 organisations showcases organisations leading the way in making workplaces more LGBT inclusive and ensuring that LGBT employees, customers and service users can be safe, accepted and respected across the UK.’

The workplace is a fantastic way to show your commitment to LGBT equality. It demonstrates that making your workplace, services and products LGBT inclusive is a priority.

This year also marked one of the Army LGBT+ Forum’s previous committee members, Capt Hannah Graf being named as Trans Role Model of the Year 2019 for her ongoing support, dedication and championing of Trans equality. Stonewall remarked ‘Hannah has supported the army with updating its facilities and policies, including developing a new guide to gender identity. Alongside her work commitments, for five years she has been the trans representative for the Army’s LGBT+ forum.’

The Army LGBT+ Forum is delighted with the success of The British Army once again this year and the many positive benefits that inclusion in the Top 100 Employers list will bring to colleagues and those working with the organisation.
