We are delighted to announce that Stewart Chippindale, Asia COO, has won the Community Business LGBT+ Executive Sponsor Award alongside Wanda Tung, Managing Director and General Counsel, Asia ex Japan, for Nomura.

The award is a true recognition of Stewart’s exceptional dedication and accomplishments in promoting LGBT+ inclusion within the firm across the Asia region. 

Being a leader in diversity and inclusion is an integral part of the firm’s strategy and vision, and we celebrate this globally across the firm. Stewart, in his role of co-chair of the internal Linklaters’ Asia LGBT and Ally Network, helps to create a culture of inclusion. The awareness of and support for LGBT+ inclusion within the firm has grown exponentially under Stewart’s chairmanship, demonstrated in our role as the pro bono legal adviser to the Gay Games Hong Kong 2022.

In addition to regularly raising the topic with senior leaders, Stewart has been instrumental in two new policies related to LGBT+ in the firm. His generosity as a vocal and visible supporter has equipped him to further provide support to offices in the Asia region.
