Webber Wentzel honours LGBTQI+ Pride Month

​​​In October, Webber Wentzel celebrated LGBTQI+ Pride Month to commemorate the first South African Pride parade held in Johannesburg on 13 October 1990.

To honour the month, the firm invited Roy Gluckman, a diversity and inclusion specialist to speak to Webber Wentzel on how to make sure all people in the workplace feel comfortable, supported and heard.

The firm also formally adopted a Gender Inclusion Policy to provide support to the LGBTQI+ community. The policy provides guidance on the use of non-sexist, gender-inclusive and gender-neutral language and to communicate the assistance that will be made available by the firm to anyone who undergoes a process of transitioning.

Webber Wentzel values and celebrates the diversity of the people who work there, and it would like everyone to feel free to be their authentic selves at work. While this month was a time for celebration, it also gave them the opportunity to address the complex, multi-faceted issues facing the LGBTQI+ community and how they can be an ally not just during Pride Month, but every day.
