Rachel Lindberg

Trainee Solicitor
I chose to train at Hogan Lovells because I was convinced that its commitment to diversity is genuine, not just a policy document, and that it forms a fundamental part of its ethos. Hogan Lovells understands and appreciates that if everyone in the firm looks the same, sounds the same and thinks the same, then it cannot possibly grow and opportunities could be missed. I knew I had made the right decision when I joined the firm for a vacation scheme. At no point during the placement did I feel that the fact I am LGBT, have a strong North-East accent, am state school educated and a first generation graduate would ever be a barrier to being a successful lawyer at Hogan Lovells.

Diversity at Hogan Lovells:

50:50 Network

 

The 50:50 network seeks to promote the advancement and retention of female talent at Hogan Lovells by providing a networking and support forum for its members, engaging with firm-wide strategy and policy development, and organising awareness raising events.

Hogan Lovells Pride and Pride+

 

Hogan Lovells Pride is a network for LGBT+ colleagues and straight allies. It aims to ensure Hogan Lovells is an environment that is LGBT+ friendly and inclusive, not just LGBT+ tolerant, and to make a positive contribution to the lives of LGBT+ colleagues, Hogan Lovells generally, and wider society. The network also celebrates the contribution LGBT+ people make, creates and maximises business opportunities through LGBT+ connections, and provides confidential support, information, and advice on LGBT+ issues for colleagues throughout the firm.

Hogan Lovells launched a global Pride+ network in 2017 to promote a supportive and inclusive culture for all LGBT+ colleagues globally and to visibly show support for the LGBT+ community, including in jurisdictions where the LGBT+ community still suffers from discrimination. We have nearly 1,300 global members and host local and global events throughout the year. A key part of Pride+ is encouraging support from LGBT+ allies.

Multicultural Network

 

The Multicultural network aims to increase the firm’s awareness and understanding of issues relating to culture, ethnicity and faith, and foster a culture of mutual respect and inclusivity by celebrating our differences. The network holds a range of events throughout the year, including our ‘Multi-stories’ speaker series and other awareness raising events.
