LSBM is a Stonewall Diversity Champion

20 Apr 2017

We are pleased to announce that LSBM is a Stonewall Diversity Champion, the UK’s leading best-practice employers' forum for issues relating to sexual orientation and gender identity equality, diversity and inclusion.

Stonewall was founded in 1989 by a small group of people who had been active in the struggle against Section 28 of the Local Government Act. The aim from the outset was to create a professional lobbying group that would prevent attacks on lesbians, gay and bi people. Stonewall has subsequently put the case for equality on the mainstream political agenda by winning support within all the main political parties and now has offices in England, Scotland and Wales.

Stonewall is renowned for its campaigning and lobbying. Some major successes include helping achieve the equalisation of the age of consent, lifting the ban on LGB people serving in the military, securing legislation which allowed same-sex couples to adopt and the repeal of Section 28. More recently Stonewall has helped secure civil partnerships and then same-sex marriage, and ensured that the recent Equality Act protected lesbian, gay and bi people in terms of goods and services.

Stonewall receives no core government funding and funds are instead raised in a variety of ways including donations, sponsorship and fundraising events. Stonewall is a member of the Equality and Diversity Forum, a network of national organisations committed to progress on age, disability, gender, race, religion and belief and sexual orientation issues.
