LGBTQ+ Trailblazers

Pride 2022: inspiring stories from business and the arts

Celebrating changemakers

LGBTQ+ representation has been hard won in business, but there is still more to do before everyone feels able to be themselves.

This year, we are marking Pride by celebrating some of the LGBTQ+ trailblazers who have shaped our world, from space exploration to media, and venture capital to fashion. They have overcome personal obstacles, challenged social norms, and helped to improve diversity of all kinds in business. The next generation of trailblazers will be standing on their shoulders as they continue to build a fairer workplace.

Below are profiles and interviews produced by our team across the firm, we hope you find them as interesting and inspiring as we do.

Happy Pride 2022!
