International law firm Clifford Chance has been ranked 11th in this year's Stonewall Workplace Equality Index, with Corporate Partner Narind Singh awarded the Senior Champion of the Year.
Now in its fourteenth year, the list celebrates the pioneering efforts of leading organisations. Its developed using a compilation of submissions to the Workplace Equality Index, a powerful benchmarking tool used by employers to create inclusive workplaces.
Narind Singh, comments: “I’m thrilled to have been given the Senior Champion of the Year award. It is a testament to the great work Clifford Chance has been doing in this area and I’m grateful for the support our thriving LGBT+ community has enjoyed over the years.”
Michael Bates, Clifford Chance London Managing partner, comments: ''We are delighted that our commitment to maintaining an inclusive environment for our people has been recognised and that we continue to be a member of Stonewall’s successful Diversity Champions programme. This year, we are particularly proud of the achievements of our corporate partner Narind Singh who is recognised with a special award for his efforts. "
Duncan Bradshaw, Director of Membership Programmes, at Stonewall said "Clifford Chance and all those who have made this year’s Top 100 Employers list have done a fantastic job. Taking part in our Index shows real commitment to understanding and advancing LGBT equality. This year, for the first time, the Index looked at what employers were doing for trans equality in the workplace. This work is crucial. We recently published LGBT in Britain: Trans Report, which revealed the profound inequality facing trans people in Britain today. Half of trans people have hidden their identity at work for fear of discrimination. This must change and it’s encouraging to see so many organisations make a commitment to trans equality. With their support and hard work we can create a world where all lesbian, gay, bi and trans employees are welcomed and accepted without exception.”
