Netanya Clixby tells Reports Legal that firms need to look harder in their search for diverse legal talent By Flo Anderson

As co-founder of the London Bisexual Network, a member of the Law Society’s LGBT+ Lawyers Division Committee and a Trustee of Open For Business (an LGBT+ rights charity), the spotlight on diversity in the legal profession is close to Netanya Clixby’s heart. ‘Rather than trying to get a one size fits all, it has to be iterative,’ she says. As a member of both the Ethnic Minority (EM) and LGBT+ communities, Clixby has been vocal about her experiences as a ‘minority within a minority’ in the legal profession. Her commitment to diversity and inclusion (D&I) within the legal profession has most recently been recognised by being shortlisted as a finalist in the UK Diversity Legal Award’s ‘BSN In-house category.
