We are committed to embedding equality and diversity in everything that we do. This means that we work hard to ensure that no one is discriminated against in any way for any reason or treated less favorably because of their gender, race, level of ability, transgender, age, sexuality or religion, belief or any other reason. It also means that we will actively tackle other barriers to fair access including social or financial reasons.
We have been ranked at number 5 in the 2012 Stonewall Workplace Equality Index of the UK’s most gay-friendly employers. It is the highest ever ranking for a housing provider and a significant improvement on last year’s position of 21. Read more
Single Equality Scheme
Our Single Equality Scheme entitled ‘All Together Different’ sets out our approach, objectives and actions in respect of equality and diversity for the next three years.
Metropolitan’s single equality scheme details how we will further embed equality and diversity into everything that we do. It was developed in consultation with resident and service user groups, their representatives, staff, Board members and other stakeholders.
