With an increasingly diverse UK population, the issue of discrimination can unfortunately be found in many areas. As such, workplace policies – across all sectors – need to be regularly reviewed and updated to ensure the inclusion and protection of all staff.  

So it was great to hear that law firm Irwin Mitchell is implementing a new diversity policy in a bid to help attract and retain transgender staff. Hopefully other companies up and down the country, including law firms, will be inspired (or prompted) to implement similar policies, which will contribute to creating more open and inclusive work environments and help drive forward fair, diverse workplaces.
