EHRC and Stonewall logos splitting

This week we received welcome news in a letter from Baroness Kishwer Falkner. The Equality and Human Rights Commission is no longer part of the controversial Stonewall Diversity Champions Scheme.

She said that the Commission seeks to ensure that all staff enjoy “acceptance without exception”.

We responded welcoming this news and calling for the Commission think deeply and conduct an internal investigation into the impact that Stonewall membership has had on its culture and external work.

Take action: sign our letter calling for a public inquiry into “Stonewall law”
