What's going on

We want to support solicitors and firms in creating a positive workplace for all staff regardless of their gender identity.

To help we have created comprehensive guidance, 'Transgender inclusion in the profession' and a checklist 'Five ways to create a trans positive workplace' offering practical tips and ways to implement them in your firm.

We also want to better understand the issues around trans equality in law firms. This is why we have made changes to our firm diversity data questionnaire, working closely with expert organisations to add in a question about transgender and provide an option for people to recognise their gender identity.
