The OUTLaw Network, which promotes and drives the inclusion of LGBT+ people across the Irish legal community, has an exciting programme of virtual events taking place in June for Pride 2021.
We are delighted to announce that we are proudly sponsoring one of the events in the programme, Pride Musical Bingo with Star DJs on Thursday 24 June 2021 at 6.30pm. This is a fun-filled, fast-paced take on traditional bingo using popular music clips. Players have the opportunity to win one of many spot prizes throughout the evening, and all attendees will be entered into a raffle at the end of the night for a top prize.
Attendance at the event is free, but you will need to register via Eventbrite here and we would encourage you to please make a minimum donation of €5 via OUTLaw’s iDonate page to support the important work of the following LGBT+ charities: TENI - Transgender Equality Network Ireland, LINC, ShoutOut, HIV Ireland, and OutWest. You can make the donation by clicking here.
We are one of the original members of the OUTLaw Network, which was formally launched in January 2019 at an event held at the National Gallery of Ireland. The launch was attended by over 250 members of the Irish legal community, most notably the Chief Justice, Mr Justice Frank Clarke, Ms Justice Marie Baker, the President of the Law Society of Ireland, Mr Patrick Dorgan and Ken Murphy, Director General of the Law Society and Micheál P O'Higgins SC, President of the Bar Council. Ms Justice Aileen Donnelly gave a short address.
Finally, we were honoured that our Diversity and Inclusion efforts have been recognised internationally. We were one of only four law firms globally named as winner of the first Accenture Outside Counsel Diversity Awards in 2021.
