The Simmons & Simmons lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) network was set up in 2006. The network is open to all Simmons & Simmons partners and employees and has the overarching aim of providing support to members of the LGBT community and providing the firm with practical assistance in addressing LGBT issues.
LGBT network members play active roles in the InterLaw Diversity Forum for LGBT networks, an inter-organisational forum for the LGBT networks in law firms and all personnel (lawyers and non-lawyers) in the legal sector, including in-house counsel.
We are proud to be recognised as one of Stonewall's Star Performer Network Groups. The firm has been a Stonewall Diversity Champion since 2005 and is currently one of the Top 10 organisations in Stonewall's Workplace Equality Index - a ranking of the top 100 gay friendly employers.
