Chennai (India), November 24, 2023: Diamondpick is proud to announce its recognition as a Bronze Employer in the fourth annual India Workplace Equality Index (IWEI) Top Employers list for the year 2023. This prestigious award acknowledges organizations that have embarked on the journey to enhance LGBT+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bi, and Trans) inclusion at the workplace by implementing inclusive policies and initiating activities that foster a diverse and inclusive environment for all employees.
IWEI is a definitive list that showcases the best employers in India for LGBT+ employees, featuring 120 organizations this year. The index categorizes organizations on the basis of their commitment to creating inclusive workplaces across their operations in India. It also serves as a powerful benchmarking tool, enabling organizations to navigate the challenges of upholding inclusive values and making consistent progress toward LGBT+ equality within their workplaces.
IWEI is the first of its kind in India, a version of the Stonewall UK Workplace Equality Index, a leading benchmarking tool for LGBT+ inclusion in the workplace. Leanne MacMillan, Director of Global Programmes at STONEWALL said, “Year on year the IWEI shows the growing commitment of employers to LGBTQ+ inclusion in the workplace. We heartily congratulate the Top Employers and the many people who work daily to build better lives for the LGBTQ+ community!”
This recognition positions Diamondpick as a trailblazer in fostering a workplace environment that supports and promotes LGBT+ inclusion with policies, hiring practices, external communication, etc. demonstrating a long-term and in-depth commitment towards creating a workplace where everyone feels valued, respected, and supported.
