TLT has achieved a double recognition from leading LGBTQ+ charity Stonewall acknowledging the firm’s success in improving LGBTQ+ inclusivity.

For the second year in a row, TLT received a Gold award following its submission to Stonewall’s Workplace Equality Index – a competitive tool that organisations can use to benchmark and measure their LGBTQ+ inclusion practices. In addition, for the first time the firm was ranked in Stonewall’s Top 100 Employers List for 2023 – the UK’s leading inclusivity ranking of employers from public, private and third sectors.

The comprehensive exercise covers all aspects of work life and employment including policies and benefits, leadership, monitoring and supply chains. The firm was recognised for the significant steps it has taken to creating an inclusive working environment, including:

  • Launch of a dedicated pronoun guide in support of trans and non-binary inclusion as part of bi-visibility and trans day of visibility

  • Explicit LGBT+ inclusive policies including those covering family leave, menopause and dress codes supported by robust messaging on our zero-tolerance policy of discrimination, harassment, and bullying

  • Empowering senior leaders to recognise LGBT inclusion as key to their role through our new Inclusive Leadership training supported by a reciprocal mentoring programme

  • Working with our LGBT+ network to take part in Bristol Pride parade for the first time in the firm’s history

Helen Hodgkinson, chief people officer at TLT said: “A people first approach and inclusivity work hand in hand and we are extremely proud of the culture we have built at TLT where everyone feels they’re able to bring their authentic selves to work. We’re delighted to have our efforts recognised and verified externally by Stonewall’s Workplace Equality Index – achieving gold for a second year in a row, as well as being ranked amongst Stonewall Top 100 Employers 2023.”
