How important is LGBTQ diversity to Chambers?
LGBTQ diversity is incredibly important to everyone at Chambers. Our Chambers Diversity & Inclusion programme is at the heart of our company, and provides a comprehensive resource for insight across all areas of diversity. We are committed to fostering and promoting an inclusive professional environment for all our employees.
We have an INSPIRE committee consisting of executive sponsors from our leadership group and committee members from across the company. Our LGBT+ sub-committee regularly organises events celebrating the LGBTQ community, including talks by prominent LGBTQ lawyers, and in June we hosted a quiz and book club in celebration of Pride month. We also regularly produce interviews and opinion pieces about the challenges facing LGBTQ lawyers across the world.
We are committed to representing the diversity of the legal market in full, including LGBTQ attorneys. All strands of diversity inform the ongoing focus on inclusion within our research processes and we in turn encourage a broad-based response to our calls for a wider range of voices informing what we do.
