When London solicitor trainee Jonathan Andrews attended Clifford Chance’s LGBT Leaders conference earlier this year, he participated in a panel on bisexuality awareness and community, which addressed the dearth of groups that specifically focus on bisexual people. Inspired, he partnered with one of the panelists to create a committee to help raise awareness around bisexuality and people in the workplace.
According to Stonewall’s 2016 Workplace Equality Index only 12% of bisexual people are out at work, compared with 33% of gay men.
The network will launch on Thursday November 17 at Simmons & Simmons. Lloyds CEO Inga Beale, one of the most high-profile bisexual executives in the world, will keynote.
Out Leadership congratulates member firms Clifford Chance and Simmons & Simmons on their important leadership.
