International law firm Pinsent Masons is celebrating being recognized for its commitment to workplace diversity in the latest edition of the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index.
The firm has been promoted into the top 10 in the influential ranking of organisations which objectively assesses the inclusivity of workplaces around the UK. This is the eighth consecutive year in which the firm has been ranked, longer than any other law firm in the index.
David Isaac, Head of the Advanced Manufacturing and Technology sector and Chair of the Diversity Steering Group at Pinsent Masons, says:
“We are delighted that we are in the top ten of the Stonewall WEI this year. We were the first law firm in the index and this is our eighth year in the rankings. We believe our position demonstrates our commitment both to diversity and the need to work hard to innovate and improve year on year. We are also very proud of the fact that this year's results highlight the significant progress that the legal profession has made in relation to LGBT equality. Firms now need to work hard to ensure that we make similar progress with other under-represented groups.”
Pinsent Masons has launched a number of important initiatives to support greater inclusivity in the workplace over the past 12 months, including rolling out its ‘Straight Allies’ programme which encourages all staff to support LGBT colleagues.
