Hogan Lovells launches Global Ability Inclusion Network

The firm revealed delivering on its commitments to diversity and inclusion and responsible business is a ‘strategic priority’

Global law firm Hogan Lovells has launched its new Global Ability Inclusion Network (GAIN), “further reinforcing the firm’s commitment” to disability inclusion.

Hogan Lovells is a signatory to The Valuable 500, the largest network of global CEOs dedicated to diversity, and to the American Bar Association “Disability Diversity in the Legal Profession: A Pledge for Change”.

Hogan Lovells revealed delivering on its commitments to diversity and inclusion and responsible business is a “strategic priority” for the firm, with disability inclusion a “core focus”, recognising it is “crucial” to achieving the UN’s 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.

Through GAIN, Hogan Lovells said it will provide a forum for colleagues with disabilities to build a community, whilst encouraging the participation of those who are “allies to and caregivers” of individuals with disabilities.

Owen Chan, managing partner and board member, said: “The launch of our new Global Ability Inclusion Network (GAIN) is an important action in providing continued support to persons with disabilities, and highlights the firm’s global commitment to playing a leadership role in advancing disability inclusion.

“GAIN encourages a diverse and inclusive workplace for our colleagues with disabilities, both apparent and non-apparent so that all our people are able to thrive by being their authentic selves.”
