Ofcom Finally Reject ‘Woke’ Takeover

The independent communication regulator, Ofcom have finally ended their relationship with Stonewall’s Diversity Champions programme.

Stonewall is politically collectivist body, which charges organisations a regular fee in exchange for monitoring their behaviour at work.

Following their recent controversial policies, which promoted identity politics in the workplace, a number of businesses and governmental bodies decided to leave the programme. These include the Human Rights Commission, Ofsted, Channel 4, and the Cabinet Office.

In a public statement, Ofcom said “First, having laid the foundations that will help us improve support for LGBTQ+ colleagues, we’re confident that we can move ahead positively, without continuing with the Diversity Champions programme.

Second, in recent months there has been significant scrutiny of some of Stonewall’s policy positions. In Ofcom’s case, we have considered whether our relationship with Stonewall poses a conflict or risk of perceived bias. Stepping back from the Diversity Champions programme, in light of this, is the right thing to do. As the communications regulator, an important part of our responsibility is to ensure we remain impartial and independent at all times.”
