The Financial Conduct Authority moves up to 40th place in Stonewall’s Top 100 Employers 2016 rankings

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.”
