Posted 31/03/2022

As part of its commitment to supporting diversity and inclusion throughout the company, Higgins is delighted to join Stonewall’s Diversity Champions Programme.

The programme helps ensure all LGBTQ+ can reach their full potential and works with organisations to enable them to demonstrate their work in eight areas of employment policy and practice, through a Workplace Equality Index.

Amy Ross, Head of Social Value at Higgins Partnerships comments, “We are committed to creating a welcoming and inclusive place to work for everyone and are delighted to be partnering with Stonewall.

“We continuously strive to ensure barriers are broken down regardless of race or gender and this is reflective in our four strategic equality and diversity priorities which align with our core values: collaborative – involve everyone; respectful – develop skills and raise awareness; committed – proactive leadership and responsible – continuous improvement.”

Stonewall’s vision is to create a world where LGBTQ+ people everywhere are free to be themselves and can live their lives to the full. Ensuring that workplaces are truly inclusive without exception is an important step towards this vision.
