LGBTQ+ Pride Month: An Inclusive and Equitable Workplace at Shearman & Sterling

Jun 25, 2020

This LGBTQ+ Pride Month, Shearman & Sterling recognizes the Black pioneers and activists for LGBTQ+ rights whose work has been an example to tens of millions of people. This is an especially poignant time with respect to the dignity of the LGBTQ+ community in the United States. On the one hand, the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision in Bostock vs. Clayton County earlier this month is cause for hope and celebration. Employment protections are an essential component of the struggle for full LGBTQ+ equality. Yet, the violent discrimination against transgender and gender non-conforming people, particularly trans women of color, persists. It is a reality that is sustained by a pervasive culture of misogyny, homophobia, and racism which inflicts these atrocities, and then denies, minimizes or ignores their existence.
