Allen & Overy is one of Stonewall’s Top Global Employers 2022. The list celebrates organisations committed to advancing LGBTQ+ inclusion in workplaces around the world. This is the fourth time the firm has been named a Top Global Employer since 2018. There was no list in 2021 due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The list recognises organisations for their efforts and commitment to creating welcoming environments for their lesbian, gay, bi and trans staff. Organisations are scored against a set of standardised criteria, which includes ensuring global HR policies are inclusive of LGBTQ+ people everywhere they work, as well as supporting safe travel for staff across the world.
Senior partner Wim Dejonghe comments: “This is fantastic recognition of our ongoing commitment to LGBTQ+ equality and the hard work of many people around our global network. We remain firmly committed to entrenching an environment where everyone can bring their whole selves to work and to having a positive impact on the world outside our firm by using the skills and expertise of our people to bring about change.”
