Baker McKenzie has been named in the top 20 of Australia’s 2016 Employers of the Year for LGBTI inclusion.

The Australian Workplace Equality Index (AWEI) is the definitive national benchmark on LGBTI workplace inclusion and comprises the largest and only national employee survey designed to gauge the overall impact of inclusion initiatives on organisational culture as well as identifying and non-identifying employees. The Index drives best practice in Australia and sets a comparative benchmark for Australian employers across all sectors.

Craig Andrade, Corporate Partner and BakerLGBTI Leader, commented: "This is a fantastic achievement for our firm having worked so hard to create an inclusive culture. It is a proud moment for us and we congratulate all employers who are making a positive difference in the LGBTI community."

"We are committed to maintaining and improving equality outcomes in all Baker McKenzie offices worldwide for all Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender and Intersex (LGBTI) people. We are focused on ensuring that sexual orientation, gender identity, gender expression and intersex status are no barrier to succeeding at our firm."
