Stephen Miles, CEO of Commercial Services, and Executive Sponsor for LGBT+ Inclusion at DWF, said: "At DWF we recognise that in half the world LGBT+ rights are not protected, but we strive for all our colleagues to have access to equal opportunity and respect wherever they are located. Our support to LGBT+ inclusion is a vital component of our culture, values and future growth."
