For the second consecutive year, the Financial Conduct Authority has been recognised as one of the top hundred Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans (LGBT)-friendly places to work. Stonewall’s annual Workplace Equality Index brings together top-performing organisations who have consistently demonstrated exemplary practice in supporting LGBT staff.
This year the FCA moved up the ranking significantly from 82 to 40, by demonstrating a commitment to being an inclusive place to work. This public recognition and improved position follows a range of initiatives, programmes and activities led by the FCA’s teams.
Tracey McDermott, Acting Chief Executive of the Financial Conduct Authority, said: “We are delighted to be listed among Stonewall's top 100 LGBT friendly employers. The fact that we have moved up the index is a great achievement. We are proud to have visible LGBT leaders throughout the organisation and regularly engage with our teams to actively embed diversity and inclusion in our day-to-day work.”
