Nottinghamshire Police opt out of LGBT charity’s workplace equality rankings

Posted on 10 Sep 2019

Nottinghamshire Police will no longer participate in Stonewall’s workplace equality index, a best-employer list which ranks organisations according to their record regarding LGBT staff.


A report by the police force explaining the decision read: “It has been decided that participation in the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index (WEI) will be withdrawn at this time as the force feels while it has learned from participation in the index it wants to explore wider benchmarking tools to develop further and the significant time taken to complete this could reap greater benefits elsewhere.

“However, Nottinghamshire Police will continue to use The Stonewall WEI as a benchmarking tool to enable us to benchmark our work on LGBT+ equality against best practice.” 


Notts Police was named the 39th best LGBT employer in the UK in the latest list and was the second-highest police force featured in the rankings, behind Cheshire Constabulary.
