Lesbian, Gay, Bi and Trans inclusion

LGBT+ mentoring scheme

11 July 2019

Alongside The Law Society and Stonewall, we supported a scheme where law firms were given the opportunity to receive free mentoring on developing their approaches to LGBT inclusivity.

This offered mentoring to small and medium-sized law firms, sharing good practice and providing guidance about creating an LGBT friendly workplace. Those who signed up were supported in attracting the best talent, as well as other business benefits such as increased networking opportunities.

The mentors, all of who are top performing law firms in theStonewall Workplace Equality Index, provided an average of two hours free support and guidance every month.

One year on, we are sharing some of their stories. Read what has been achieved from this innovative scheme and the impact it has made.
