Arup joins Stonewall’s Diversity Champions Programme – Britain's good practice employers' forum on sexual orientation.

Stonewall is the largest lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) equality organisation in the UK and Europe. The Diversity Champions programme brings together top employers from across the UK to promote diversity in the workplace, helping businesses and public services to develop inclusive workplace cultures and ensuring staff can perform to their full potential.

Joining the programme follows the hugely successful inaugural event of Arup’s Connect Out group – the firm’s LGBT network – which Lord Browne of Madingley recently addressed with an extraordinary and candid lecture describing his experience as a gay man in business.

Arup is firmly committed to providing a workplace that supports diversity. Our membership of Stonewall’s programme demonstrates our intentions to respect, welcome and support LGBT professionals in our business. ” Alan Belfield UKMEA Chair
