Report: 80% of largest U.K. companies lack trans-inclusive non-discrimination policies
- LGBT network OUTstanding found that despite general statements of commitment to diversity, most FTSE 100 companies lack explicit policies on the books to protect trans employees from employment discrimination.
- The report also found that just under half of the U.K.’s top companies lack specifically inclusive non-discrimination policies for LGB employees.
- However, OUTstanding also reported that LGBT issues were the second-most discussed diversity topic, following gender inequality.
“From my own experience, I know that there are many enlightened CEOs who value diversity. In fact, 62% of our members say LGBT issues have been publicly discussed by their CEO. It’s vital that more businesses – including all those in the FTSE 100 – consider their attitude to LGBT inclusion as an asset worth reporting.”
