Nexus – Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity Network at SRA
Nexus is a sexual orientation and gender identity employee network. It was established in 2015 to promote equal opportunities for LGBT+ staff members. It offers professional and confidential support and raises awareness of LGBT+ issues more widely.
Last year, the network assisted in launching SRA Allies, which gives all staff the opportunity to show support and commitment to creating a diverse and inclusive workplace. The network also organises the SRA’s strong presence at Birmingham, Cardiff and London Pride, partnering with other regulators and local law firms. Nexus has been actively involved in assisting a comprehensive review of internal policies; making sure they are inclusive and congruent to the requirements of our diverse workforce. Externally, our work involves promoting a fair and diverse profession – this has included specific projects around creating a transgender inclusive workforce. We have recently published some guidance on this for the profession, highlighting good practice.
