Sexual orientation & gender identity in the UK

Proud, together

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. 

Meet equaliTW – our active LGBT+ network 

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.

 

Our approach to trans inclusion

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.

The arts

Creative thinking is at the heart of our culture in the UK and we see art as an important instrument of change.
