Mayer Brown has been recognized as one of the leading UK law firms committed to LGBT+ inclusion in Stonewall’s Workplace Equality Index (WEI). The firm placed 22nd in the legal sector overall and 21st in the listing of top 25 law firms working proactively to promote an environment of inclusion and respect for lesbian, gay, bi and trans partners and employees within the firm.

The WEI is an annual audit and benchmarking tool of workplace culture for LGBT+ staff in the UK. To qualify for a ranking, employers across the public, private and third sectors are required to demonstrate how LGBT+ inclusive they are across ten different areas of employment policy and practice. 

The London office of Mayer Brown has an active LGBT+ and allies network, which runs a number of awareness events and inclusion initiatives.
