Our Diversity Steering Group and network of Diversity Champions provides strong and visible leadership to support the implementation of our strategic diversity objectives and in doing so, embeds diversity into the way we do business.
We are recognised by Stonewall as a top performing business on LGBT inclusion and in 2017 ranked 36th in their Top 100 employers list. In 2018, we are delighted to have been chosen to be a Mentor in an innovative pilot that has been launched by the Solicitors Regulation Authority and Stonewall, to develop LGBT inclusivity in small and medium-sized law firms.
We were the first legal business to achieve 'ClearAssured' status, establishing us as an inclusive recruiter for disabled talent. Developed by The Clear Company, the UKs leading auditors of inclusive recruitment practice, this benchmark has helped us to identify and remove barriers which have the potential to exclude disabled people. As an inclusive employer, we will make every appropriate effort to welcome any suitably qualified candidate into our business.
Disability Confident is a Government scheme that is designed to help recruit and retain disabled people. We were the first legal business to be recognised as a Disability Confident Leader in 2017.
Working Families is the UK’s leading work-life balance organisation. Each year we validate all aspects of our flexible, agile and work life policies and practice, and how we are integrating them into our values and culture.
The Employers Network for Equality & Inclusion (ENEI) is the leading employer network covering all aspects of equality and inclusion in the workplace. In 2017, we achieved Gold Standard in their diversity benchmarking and were recognised as winners in the Equality & Inclusion Senior Champion and Advancing Social Mobility in the Workplace categories at the ENEI Awards.
