The University has participated in the Stonewall Employer Index since 2011:
2017: 41st out of 439
2016: 53rd out of 416
2015: 43rd out of 397
2014: 158th out of 369
2013: 161st out of 376
2012: 235th out of 350
We jumped a massive 115 places between 2014 and 2015 to place us in the Top 100 for the first time. Our current position also means we are amongst the top 5 Universites in the country and one of the top companies in the North West. Read news articles here and here.
In 2015 and 2017 the Network Group ALLOUT also received a 'highly commended' award for the hard work and inclusive activites carried out and in 2015 was named the best network group in the NorthWest.
The index measures how 'LGBT inclusive' organisations are and looks at different areas such as engagement, activities, networks and inclusion of LGBT staff in documentation.
We also submit to the student measure 'Gay by Degree' and are pleased to have added two more ticks in the latest scoring round! We now have 8/10: www.gaybydegree.org.uk/university/manchester/
A team of nine people are working on the 2018 index. Our deadline is September 2017, so regular updates will be provided. If you would like to be involved in this process, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
