2018: Our Impact

2300

We trained over 2,300 teachers, 971 of whom are based in schools with faith values.

OVER 2300 TEACHERS TRAINED

Stonewall delivers training to teachers through Train the Trainer courses. These courses equip pastoral, anti-bullying and PSHE leads in schools to train colleagues in tackling homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying.

The training also helps teachers to understand how to support LGBT young people, as well as how to meet the requirements of the new Ofsted inspection framework.

Get involved with education.

Our first guide for practitioners working in Early Years Foundation Stage was distributed to 11,000 settings through our Education and School Champions.

We worked with over 1500 School Champions

We now have over 1,500 Stonewall School Champions working to make schools a safe and inclusive space for LGBT pupils – 458 of these are schools with faith values.

80

We also launched our Diversity Champions programme in Northern Ireland, in partnership with The Rainbow Project. It already has 14-member organisations making it the largest LGBT workplace programme in Northern Ireland.

We welcomed over 80 new Diversity Champions across the UK

We know that people perform better when they can be themselves. That’s why we created Diversity Champions, the leading employers’ programme for ensuring all LGBT staff are accepted without exception in the workplace. We worked with over 800 organisations through our Diversity Champions programmes, all of whom share our core belief in the power of a workplace that is truly equal.

25 global organisations, employing more than 1,283,000 people across the world, demonstrated their commitment to improving workplace equality by entering our Global Workplace Equality Index.

AND OVER 150 GLOBAL BUSINESSES

Inclusive societies not only benefit individuals but enable companies and economies to flourish. However, in more than half the world, LGBT people may not be protected by workplace law.

Our Global Diversity Champions programme works to ensure all lesbian, gay, bi and trans staff are accepted without exception in workplaces worldwide.

Our Future Plans

FEAR OF DISCRIMINATION IN THE WORKPLACE

Our Response :

Continue to work with institutions to embed cultures of inclusion and acceptance across workplaces and service provision. We will broaden this impact by transforming institutions into advocates and enablers of social change in the communities and marketplaces they operate in, here and abroad.

PHYSICAL VIOLENCE A REALITY & LOW HATE CRIME REPORTING

Our Response :

We must deepen our understanding of sector-specific challenges, develop related strategies and tailor our interventions, particularly for service provision across education, in sport, with faith organisations, with national umbrella bodies across the private and public sectors, and with SMEs.

WORKING AND ENGAGING WITH SMALL & MEDIUM ENTERPRISES (SMES) HERE & ABROAD

Our Response :

We need to grow our international impact through existing programmes and by expanding our influence and work to more countries through collaboration with LGBT campaigners and institutions. As part of this, we must better collaborate with and support our Global Diversity Champions (GDCs) and Global Founding Partners (GFPs) to drive social change through their activities and influence.

INEQUALITY IN HEALTHCARE, RURAL SETTINGS, PLACES OF WORSHIP & SPORT

Our Response :

We must understand and address issues faced by specific LGBT communities, and how institutions can affect change for these groups, including trans people, LGBT BAME/PoC or disabled people, older LGBT people, NEETs (those Not in Education, Employment or Training), youth, LGBT people of faith, and LGBT people in rural or isolated communities.
