LGBTQ+ History Month

08 Feb 2021

This February marks LGBTQ+ History Month in the UK. Within the UK, this coincides with the anniversary of the abolition of Section 28, and the month itself celebrates lesbian, bisexual and transgender history, as well as the history of LGBTQ+ rights movements. The month is celebrated at different times of the year in several different countries; however, the universal focus is on the rights and contributions of LGBTQ+ people worldwide and the importance of working to achieve full LGBTQ+ equality.

CIArb is committed to building a diverse and inclusive community of dispute resolvers, and we are proud to support the aims of LGBTQ+ History Month. Our Equality, Diversity and Inclusion Strategy aims to properly measure – and subsequently improve – representation within CIArb’s membership, and this includes LGBTQ+ people from all backgrounds. We will work to inculcate our EDI commitments across everything we do, from training and education to events and conferences. By taking pro-active steps, our ambition is to deliver on our vision of an inclusive global community of diverse dispute resolvers.
