We are excited to announce that we will be running our third annual WeilPride insight evening this year. WeilPride is the Firm’s LGBTQ+ networking group. Its mission is to enhance the Firm’s recruitment and retention of LGBTQ+ staff, as well as foster a better understanding of the unique issues that face the LGBTQ+ community.
This is your opportunity to hear first-hand about the work Weil is doing to support the LGBTQ+ community and gain an insight into the culture of the Firm. Our Partners, Associates and Trainees will share their experiences of being LGBTQ+ in the legal industry and at Weil, and give you the chance to ask questions. There will also be plenty of opportunities to network with Lawyers from the WeilPride network as well as Graduate Recruitment and other members of the Firm over drinks and canapés.
The agenda will follow the below:
16:30 – 17:00 – Overview of Weil, WeilPride and Weil’s LGBTQ+ related pro bono efforts
17:00 – 17:45 – ‘My pride story’ panel discussion / Q&A
17:45 – 18:30 – Networking and canapés
