If the City fails to tackle this issue head-on then not only is it depriving itself of valuable skills but also the diversity in perspectives needed to innovate.

Simply having 'more of the same' will lead to stagnation. Other cities will not make the same mistakes and London will lose competitive advantage. It's also just simply unfair.

This is an issue for policy-makers as well as the City and individual firms. It can only be assumed that these same feelings exist across other groups as well, especially LBGT and BME.
