    Eversheds has been featured in the 2017 Stonewall Top 100 Employers Index for the 9th year running. The Stonewall Top 100 Employers 2017 represents the best places to work for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) staff in a competitive labour market. This year Eversheds climbed 17 places to rank 69th.

    For over a decade, Stonewall’s Index has been a powerful benchmarking tool used by employers to create inclusive workplaces to ensure all LGBT employees can be themselves in their workplace. The list is compiled from submissions to the workplace equality index. Now in its twelfth year, the index celebrates the pioneering efforts of leading organisations to create inclusive workplaces.

    Rob Pitcher, Eversheds LGBT partner sponsor commented:

    “It is a great achievement to feature in the top 100 for eight consecutive years. At Eversheds, we embrace difference, accept people for who they are and promote an inclusive environment where people have a real opportunity to flourish and achieve their full potential. The leadership displayed by our three perspective LGBT employee network chairs, Kallun Willock, Lee O’Connell and Paul Pahiti has been key in our success. We are extremely proud to have moved up the rankings in the Index.”

    Duncan Bradshaw, director of membership programmes, Stonewall said:

    “Eversheds and all those who have made this year’s Top 100 Employers list have done a fantastic job, and really do put equality and inclusion at the forefront of their work. We were thrilled to have 439 submissions for this year’s Index, one of the most competitive yet, and I would like to thank each and every organisation that took part. With your continued efforts and hard work, we will continue to work toward a world where all lesbian, gay, bi and trans staff are welcomed and accepted without exception in their workplaces.”
