As part of our ongoing commitment to create a diverse and inclusive workplace, we have signed up to Stonewall’s Global Diversity Champion programme.
Stonewall is the leading LGBT+ organisation in the UK and Europe. Their mission, to forge partnerships with other organisations to create real change for the better, is perfectly aligned to our own mission, which is to keep society safe and secure.
Speaking of the announcement, Yvonne Harley, Group Head of Communications, NCC Group says: “We are looking forward to working with Stonewall to help us to create a positive workplace experience for our LGBT+ colleagues. As part of our Sustainability programme, we made a commitment in 2019 to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) and this directly supports the work we are doing around SDG 10: Reduced Inequalities.”
Colin Watt, NCC Group’s Chief People Officer adds: “This membership, along with our colleague’s personal experiences and passion will enable us to create an even better place to work. We have circa 1,900 colleagues around the world and we want to ensure everyone feels welcome and has equal opportunity to play a part in the Group’s success.”
We will take part in Stonewall’s Global Workplace Equality index in March, which will then provide a basis for developing a programme to support activity. Membership offers access to resources to support our business along with opportunities for all colleagues to take part in a range of events that Stonewall host throughout the year.
