Dear HS2 - FOI Request,

Can I please simplify my first 4 questions, so that they can be answered mainly with "yes" or "no" replies or very simple answers please?

Q1: did you make an application in 2019 or 2020 to be a “Stonewall Diversity Champion” or to be included on Stonewall’s “Workplace Equality Index”? Can you attach the application form(s), please? Please redact personal details if necessary.
2. Did you receive any feedback in 2019 or 2020 from Stonewall in relation to either application or programme? The answer might be "yes" in order to save you searching too many e-mail accounts
3. Did you receive any other communication from Stonewall in 2019 or 2020 unless privileged or otherwise exempt from disclosure? Again (probably) a "yes" answer. If you claim privilege or exemption in relation to any material, can you please say in broad terms what the material is - you have already stated that the material is in a variety of e-mail accounts.
4. Did you carry out an equality impact assessment in connection with any of these applications (including any equality impact assessment carried out prior to an earlier application of the same kind, if no further assessment was done)? What I am referring to is an EIA which compares the impact of the work with Stonewall on the other 8 protected characteristics. Have you done such an EIA?

You have told me that you are happy to answer Q5 and Q6:
5. Details of the total amount of money you paid to Stonewall (i) in 2019; (ii) in 2020, whether or not as payment for goods or services.
6. Whether you intend to continue your membership of any Stonewall scheme in the future, and if so which.
Thank you.

Yours sincerely,

U. Winfield
