Lesbian and gay rights campaigning group Stonewall is to review its most senior role when executive director Angela Mason leaves at the end of the year.
Mason, who was with the charity for 10 years, has been appointed director of the Government's new Women and Equality Unit.
The charity's deputy director Max Manin said: "Inevitably when the chief executive goes it's an opportunity to look at the current situation and review."
Stonewall claimed a major coup last week when it won a court of appeal test case for housing succession rights to be extended to gay and lesbian couples.
The not-for-profit limited company, which started out as a lobbying and advocacy body, has diversified and expanded and now has a core team of 14 staff.
