DIVERSITY, INCLUSION, AND EQUALITY ESSAY COMPETITION

 

OCTOBER 2020 - APRIL 2021

FEBRUARY'S QUESTION:

“It was revealed that 96% of gay male and 92% of gay female respondents were out in their personal lives. However, only 9% of gay male and 27% of gay female respondents described themselves as 'widely out' in the workplace”

How can legal work-spaces encourage openness about sexuality (LGBTQ+) within the modern workforce.
