Washington D.C.,  21 September 2020 – Hogan Lovells is pleased to announce that the firm has been recognized in Stonewall's Top Global Employers 2020, one of only 17 organizations around the world to make the list.

In noting the firm's position in the Top Global Employers list, Charlotte Suttle, Stonewall's Senior Membership Programmes Manager, said: "Your place as a Top Global Employer 2020 recognises the global commitment Hogan Lovells has demonstrated to advancing equality for LGBT people. We would like to extend our heartfelt congratulations to you and all those within your organisation working hard to stand up for the rights of your LGBT staff and of LGBT people everywhere."

It is a global strategic priority for the firm that we aim to be truly representative of all individuals."
