The John Innes Centre has been a proud member of Stonewall’s Diversity Champion programme since 2016 and features in Stonewall’s Starting Out Guide for LGBT careers in science.

On-site we have a variety of ways in which we show visible support for LGBT+ people and allies, including a support group, rainbow lanyards and an annual appearance at Norwich Pride. We also benefit from our proximity to UEA and their extensive support network for LGBT+ people.

As part of the work we are doing to support LGBT+ people we have engaged with Stonewall to review our E&D and Dignity at Work Policies and identify ways to make them trans inclusive.

We have also adopted a Transitioning at work policy.
