​Everton becomes a Stonewall Diversity Champion

Everton is continuing to demonstrate its commitment to equality and diversity by becoming one of the first football clubs to sign up as a Stonewall Diversity Champion, reports www.fcbusiness.co.uk

Stonewall is Europe's leading charity for lesbian, gay, bi and trans equality, working with more than 750 organisations to help them further strengthen their commitment to the LGBT+ community and ensure they offer an environment where everyone can be themselves.

As Stonewall Diversity Champions, Everton and its official charity, Everton in the Community, will receive expert consultation from Stonewall, and together will review current polices, practices and staff training. Staff will also have access to best practice case studies and seminars, resources and toolkits, and Everton will be listed on the Proud Employers careers site.

Everton recently achieved the Advanced Level of the Premier League Equality Standard (PLES) and signing up to Stonewall's Diversity Champions programme is part of the club's continuing commitment to 'All Together Now', ensuring equality and inclusion for all.
