LGBTI Alliance, our LGBTI (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex) program is an essential part of our diversity agenda.

The primary function of LGBTI Alliance is to help the Firm to:

  • Foster a LGBTI inclusive culture;
  • Support and encourage LGBTI people in the Firm;
  • Connect with the broader LGBTI community (through participating in and developing our
    Pro Bono and Community Connect initiatives); and
  • Promote our program and engage with industry and external stakeholders; and develop internal policies, training, education, practices and other services and initiatives to assist the LGBTI program to achieve its objectives.
Matt Condello Lawyer and member of the Melbourne LGBTI Alliance Committee

It has been great to see how committed Clayton Utz is, not only to LGBTI inclusion, but genuinely celebrating the differences each of us bring in to the workplace. Being involved in the LGBTI Alliance has given me the opportunity to engage with the broader LGBTI community, particularly in the pro bono space. I feel confident that I can come to work and be exactly who I am.
