Legal services sector: Good progress on LGBT+…
A landmark survey into the experiences of LGBT+ lawyers and LGBT+ equality in the profession conducted by the Law Society of England and Wales has identified significant progress, but more is needed.
To mark Pride season 2020, we celebrate LGBT+ champions. Ewan Watson, LGBT+ committee member interviews Katrina Robinson MBE, who shares her experience of qualifying as a solicitor and discusses the importance of firms supporting LGBT+ colleagues and eliminating unconscious bias in the workplace.
Katrina Robinson MBE is the Chair of the Law Society’s LGBT+ Committee. She is a civil litigator specialising in anti-social behaviour and fraud and has a very busy in-house practice. Katrina has been passionate about diversity and inclusion for a substantial number of years and is very involved with LGBT+ rights activism and has been from the 1980s. She has a wife and a cat, both of whom take up all of her free time!
