2018

"This is getting better, especially with the London office setting up its own committee to tackle these issues. More is also being done at the recruitment level but, as with all law firms, there is a long way to go."
Second year trainee, London
"We have a very active diversity committee."
Second year trainee, London
"The diversity committee is a welcome addition and organises interesting and enjoyable events. The gender pay gap report was a good step towards greater transparency."
First year trainee, London
"The firm's gender pay gap figures were pretty awful, but there seems to be a genuine commitment to trying to improve this over the next few years. There has also been an obvious change to the recruitment process that recognises diversity a lot more (particularly education and routes into law)."
First year trainee, London
"Dechert is improving its diversity. There are no obvious problems specific to Dechert in relation to women for recruitment and retention, rather it is an industry problem. There is a diversity committee that organises events throughout the year."

2017

"The firm has a Global Women's Initiative but there are only three female partners in London. There could be more diversity at the associate and partner level."
First year trainee, London
"The firm is not particularly diverse and there are very few female partners in London. There are some firm-wide diversity policies in place but there could be more action taken on them."
Second year trainee, London
"There are very few women partners at the firm. I think this is something that is gradually being focused on more, though."
