PROMOTING LGBT+ EQUALITY & INCLUSION ACROSS THE BAR
What is Freebar?
FreeBar is a network aiming to foster inclusion and support for LGBT+ people working as and with barristers. With the support of Stonewall, we’re working to make sure that everyone from the Head of Chambers to pupils and members of staff at all levels can share the experience of ‘Acceptance without Exception’.
We aim to do that through:
- Connecting LGBT+ people and allies to provide a forum of mutual support.
- Raising awareness of LGBT+ equality and diversity issues specific to the Bar.
- Sharing best practices on workplace inclusion.
Everyone is welcome
We are interested in hearing your views and ideas about the development of FreeBar. We know that both self-employed and employed barristers work in many different structures, and that many different types of people work with them. We want to make sure that FreeBar can reflect and serve as a resource for as many kinds of people as possible.
