in collaboration with Global Butterflies

The InterLaw Diversity Forum launched its Trans Initiative in 2013 in the first City event focused on trans professionals in collaboration with Lloyds Banking Group and others.

We also created a Purple Reign event in 2015 unveiling photographs including over 25 trans individuals with a keynote address from Mia Yamamoto followed by several panels of trans leaders and future leaders. This event was attended by almost 200 people as the official closing event of Pride in London. 

We are now proud to be collaborating with the inspiring Rachel Reese, Founder of Global Butterflies, a consultancy specialising in trans* inclusivity within the workplace, to re-invigorate and re-launch our trans initiative as “Trans*Mission”.

Guide to Gender-Neutral Drafting

18 Nov 2019

As part of our Gender Equality Initiative and to recognise Trans Awareness Week, we teamed up with the Office of the Parliamentary Counsel and the Government Legal Department to bring you this informative breakfast seminar on gender-neutral drafting where we shared best practice with colleagues across the legal profession and demonstrated how easy it is to draft in a way that is legally effective and gender neutral.

We also released a publication, Guide to Gender-Neutral Drafting, providing simple and effective guidance on the subject. Supported by Global Butterflies and InterLaw Diversity Forum’s Trans*Mission, this publication has been drafted by the Office of the Parliamentary Counsel and the Government Legal Department. This guide distills years of work by both organisations to promote gender-neutral drafting in a wide range of UK government legal documents.


Gender-neutral drafting in legal documentation has multiple benefits for equality and inclusion, including promoting gender equality and equality across the gender-identity spectrum. Furthermore, a significant percentage of the next generation of the workforce no longer sees gender as binary and expects to see a new and better approach to gender identity and expression in documentation.
