FINANCIAL REPORTING COUNCIL

How are LGBT+ people represented at senior levels of FTSE companies?

We were commissioned by the Financial Reporting Council to understand LGBTQ+ inclusion at senior levels in FTSE 100 and 250 companies, to examine the ways in which corporate culture both supports and fails people across a spectrum of sexual orientation and gender identity.

Through an extensive literature review, in-depth interviews with LGBTQ+ leaders and inclusion experts, and a series of deliberative workshops, our research explored and surfaced important implications for the development of inclusive company policies and practices.

Our report (see “Explore topic” in side bar) was launched at a webinar co-hosted by The Good Side and the FRC, with guest speakers from Amazon, Santander and Global Butterflies.
