Stonewall Diversity Champions Programme

Cardiff and Vale University Health Board is proud to be a Stonewall Diversity Champion.

As a Stonewall Diversity Champion, we are committed to taking steps to advance sexual orientation and gender identity equality in the workplace.  This is being achieved through interventions including:

  • advertising our organisation in Starting Out Careers Guide
  • attending networking events and participating in Pride season.
  • supporting the Rainbow LGBT+ FFlag Network for UHB staff.
  • working to embed best practice into our policy and practice.

The UHB also participates annually in Stonewall’s Workforce Equality Index and takes pride in being a Top 100 employer.  This external benchmarking exercise covers 10 business areas with three levels against each of them (foundations, next steps, best practice):

  • Employee policies and benefits
  • Employee lifecycle
  • LGBT employee network
  • Allies and role models
  • Senior leadership
  • Monitoring
  • Procurement
  • Community engagement
  • Clients, customers and service users
  • Additional work

Whilst the Index has a focus on sexual orientation and gender identity, it does apply as a benchmark more broadly and the recommendations the UHB receives will be used in developing our broader approach to equality and inclusion.
