Gideon Moore, Managing Partner of Linklaters LLP, hosted the VIP Dinner at the Serpentine Sackler Gallery.
“When our people thrive, our business thrives,” said Moore. “We are proud to be part of a wider team in the business community committed to driving forward the moral, business and economic case for LGBT+ equality and inclusion around the world.”
Ryan Atkin, who recently became the first openly gay professional football referee in the world, participated in a conversation with author and broadcaster Frances Edmonds.
“The English Premier League is the most watched League in the world, which makes it a great platform to educate and nurture people,” Atkins said, in discussing his rationale for coming out. “I decided to openly come out as I believe the game needs it and I can drive change with the support of the professional bodies of making the sport inclusive for everyone.”
