The InterLaw Diversity Forum has held monthly meetings for our LGBT+ Network  since its launch in 2008.


These monthly meetings serve to create a space for diverse individuals and allies to meet to share best practice, to network, and to provide support.

Our LGBT+ Network meetings take place on the third Wednesday of every month.

Legal Pride | "Focus on Trans and Non-Binary in the City"

23 Jun 2020

COVID-19 has impacted everyone across the globe, but we have seen that it is not impacting everyone in the same way.  We know from EU studies that the LGBT+ community has been impacted in greater ways, both economically and around physical and mental wellbeing.  Their study has also shown that the trans and non-binary community have suffered even more negative effects.  We have also seen the roll back (or threatened roll back) of legal rights and protections for trans and non-binary people in the UK, Europe and across the globe.  This whole situation is unfolding against a backdrop of discriminatory views and negative attacks in the UK press and on social media.

Please join us for a special event from the InterLaw Diversity Forum in collaboration with our partners at Global Butterflies, the leading experts on trans and non-binary issues in the workplace.  We have assembled a panel of trans and non-binary talent from the legal sector and the world of business. 

We will be discussing the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic on the trans & non-binary community and its impact on Pride season.  We will also explore the importance of allies (from inside and outside the LGBT+ community) and what steps they can take to support, especially in the face of possible negative UK law changes.
