Stonewall Talent Programme

'People Perform Better When They Can Be Themselves'

“The programme has shown me that being authentic is more important than being perfect – I have learnt to be authentic and not have to push myself to the limit to be a role model or leader.” - Talent Programme participant


Stonewall’s Talent Programme, very kindly supported by Bank of America Merrill Lynch, is a free two day programme for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people who are yet to begin - or are at the early stages of - their career. The Programme provides a space for 36 individuals to explore how identity relates to career ambitions and the kind of influence you are able to have in your future working life. Stonewall research has demonstrated that people perform better at work when they can be themselves and don’t feel like they have to hide who they are.

"I came here hoping to gain confidence in this and I'm leaving with the thoughts that I have nothing to worry about." - Talent Programme participant

“The Talent Programme has inspired me to continue being proud and to pursue my aspirations.” - Talent Programme participant

The application process for the 2015 Talent Programme will open here in July.
