As one of Stonewall's top 100 employers, we’re deeply proud of our reputation as an inclusive workplace for our LGBT+ colleagues.
All of our policies and benefits are designed to be inclusive and apply regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.
equaliTW provides peer support and networking opportunities, strategic advice on issues relevant to the LGBT+ community and champions inclusion across the firm. Our straight allies are an integral part of the network, enabling everyone to play a part in promoting LGBT+ equality.
We know that members of the transgender community face high levels of discrimination at work. That’s something we’re actively preventing here.
We've worked with specialists to publish a transitioning at work policy and offer guidance and support for anyone who wishes to transition, their managers, colleagues and clients.
I'm immensely proud to be the partner champion for LGBT+ inclusion at Taylor Wessing. As well as co-founding Freehold, we have developed a great internal network of LGBT+ staff and allies who all work hard to support our people and clients across our UK offices.
As co-chair of our LGBT+ network, I'm really proud of the work we do to support our colleagues and spread awareness of LGBT+ issues. I've been out since the start of my career and it's always been crucial to me that I work somewhere that is actively supportive of my identity. I'm really happy to be able to bring my whole self to work at Taylor Wessing.
While inclusivity starts at home, we promote it in the wider world in our work with three brilliant organisations:
We co-founded Freehold, an award-winning network for LGBT Property Professionals, which continues to go from strength to strength.
Opening Doors is a charity helping older LGBT+ Londoners. We've helped raise money, support community projects and their presence at Pride in London in 2018 and 2019.
As panel members of Human Dignity Trust, we offer support to local lawyers mounting legal challenges against the criminalisation of homosexuality in the 40 Commonwealth countries where it remains illegal.
