The University of Derby has been included in a top 100 of employers for its commitment to LGBTQ+ inclusion at work.

Compiled by Stonewall, Europe’s largest charity for lesbian, gay, bi, trans and queer rights, the list recognises employers who support LGBTQ+ employees to be themselves at work.

The list features construction firms and legal, health, finance and education providers. As well as the university, also included on the list is Rolls-Royce.

The university has also received the Stonewall Gold Employer Award for the second year running.

Professor Kathryn Mitchell, vice-chancellor of the University of Derby, said: “I am delighted that the university has been recognised by Stonewall for the continuing emphasis we place on supporting all people to be themselves.

“The Top 100 ranking and the Gold Employer Award reflect the work we have done to emphasise our commitment to inclusion and demonstrate that our university is a safe and inclusive environment for our staff and students to work and study.”
