Diversity Champions

Hey everyone. Stonewall have issued its list of the top 100 employers who are part of its Diversity Champions programme. That is those employers who are working to promote lesbian, gay and bisexual equality in the workplace in the belief that people perform better when they can be themselves.

Check out the latest list and see if you can spot the Scottish Episcopal Church’s ranking.


  1. We’re in there at 101 I think.

  2. Kelvin says

    Well, wishful thinking, Kenny, but I don’t think we are.

  3. Rosemary says

    Tell you what, while we tackle discriminaton on the basis of gender – and that may take some time – how about taking age discrimination head on? Because I am totally sick of being discriminated against because of my age when I know if I did not ned to give it, I might easily get the job otherwise. It is just an idea in somebody’s head …. like sexual orientation. How we do the job matters – not how young or how straight we happen to be.

  4. Yes Rosemary. In this area, at least, there is some progress to report in the church. We are just in the business of removing some age discrimination from the Code of Canons. We’ve been urged to do so on the grounds that that’s what employers who want to avoid prosecution do.

    I kind of wish we did things because we thought they were right rather than because we fear prosecution. It has alwas seemed rather odd to me that the same people who say that clergy are not employed in one breath insist we remove age discrimination on legal grounds in another.
