Information about Stonewall Workplace Equality Index (WEI)

The request was successful.

Dear University College London,

Please can you

1. Confirm whether your organisation applied to be part of the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index in 2021 (for 2022) (NB the index was suspended in 2020/21 because of Covid)

2. Give details of the total amount of money you paid to Stonewall in 2021 whether or not as payment for goods or services.

3. State whether you intend to continue your membership of any Stonewall scheme in the future, and if so which.

If the answer to 1 C) is yes, please supply:

4. Any application you made in 2021 to be included on Stonewall’s Workplace Equality Index, including any attachments or appendices to those applications. Please redact personal details if necessary.

5. Any feedback you received in 2021/22 from Stonewall in relation to either application or programme. This must include the priorities or objectives written by your organisation’s representative at the end of the feedback form.

EXEMPTIONS?

If your organisation is considering refusing to disclose feedback received as part of the Stonewall scheme by relying on section 41 (confidential information) and/or section 43 (commercial interest) of FOI, please note the recent ICO decisions IC-129040-Y4T2 and IC-125081-Q8J6 which rejected these reasons. Sex Matters has written a short briefing on these two ICO decisions: please see www.sex-matters.org/wp-content/uploads/2...

Yours faithfully,
