Best place to work in Finance and IT if you’re gay?

Stonewall have just released their annual ranking of the best employers for gay people in Britain. 

Interesting to see who’s who in our community.  For example, of the Top 100, we have quite a few nominations of good gay places in Retail and Investment Banking (position in Top 100 given first):

  • 6   Lloyds TSB 92% 
  • 17 Barclays 86% 
  • 17 Credit Suisse 86% 
  • 29 The Co-operative 83% 
  • 38 Goldman Sachs 81% 
  • 43 HBOS 80% 
  • 43 JPMorgan 80% 
  • 43 Lehman Brothers 80% 
  • 43 Merrill Lynch 80% 
  • 59 Citi 78% 
  • 74 Morgan Stanley 76% 
  • 92 Nationwide Building Society 73%
  • 97 American Express 71% 
  • 97 UBS 71%

and in consultancy:

  • 9   PricewaterhouseCoopers 91% 
  • 17 Accenture 86% 
  • 29 KPMG 83% 
  • 78 Ernst & Young 75%

But what happened in IT?  Only two IT firms in the Top100:

  • 5   IBM 93% 
  • 11 BT 90%

What happened to Intel, Microsoft, Sun, Google, eBay, PayPal … makes me think that Sexism in the City might not be half as bad as Sexism in IT?
