Ever since taking the lead to organise the firm’s LGBT+ network’s very first event, Krishna has worked hard to ensure the network’s development and success, and has been instrumental in the firm’s visible commitment to LGBT+ issues. He has worked with the CSR team to set up a dedicated Pro-Bono Cell at Slaughter and May in 2017 for the very first time, to triangulate the firm’s expertise for social good and has been responsible for the creation of a business plan for PRISM with regard to client engagement and pro bono work, as well as delivering them. He mentors junior LGBT+ and BAME lawyers and students through the firm and through the DIVERScity scheme, and actively participates in recruitment events aimed at encouraging applications from LGBT+, BAME, and non-traditional background candidates. Externally, Krishna is in partnership with the Mumbai based agency Flying Cursor, and GLAAD, creating a video campaign featuring Bollywood celebrities speaking up in favour of LGBT+ rights, under the slogan “Inclusive India”, a take on the “Incredible India” tourism campaign. He is also working with HRC and Open for Business on an op-ed for a major international publication featuring global CEOs making the business case for Diversity and Inclusion, and setting out the economic cost of exclusion and discrimination.
