We have a culture of fairness, equality and inclusion. Wherever you join us, you’ll find talented people with different views, experiences and backgrounds. It’s this breadth of knowledge and insight that adds new dimensions to how we tackle client challenges, drives innovation and keeps us working with the best talent.
We’re home to a wide variety of awareness-raising networks, run by our people for our people. Offering networking opportunities and running seminars, these supportive and inclusive groups educate our business. Current networks include Ability, which aims to help the firm become more disability confident, Women Lawyers, Women Trainee Lawyers, Women in Business Services, Family as well as LGBT and Multiculturalism, which celebrates diverse ethnicity, religion, faith and culture.
We also have Associate discussion groups as forums for open dialogue and networking.
We aim to increase the number of women in our global partnership to 30%. We were one of the first global law firms to commit to international gender targets publicly, and we’re on track to deliver a more equal global leadership by 2019.
Our commitment to equality has seen us awarded a number of accolades. In the UK for example, we’ve been recognised by The Times as one of the Top 50 Employers for Women and we’re immensely proud of our status as a Stonewall Top 100 Employer for LGBT individuals. We were also delighted to receive the BITC Transforming Cultures Award at the Gender Equality Awards 2016 in recognition of our smart approach to Agile working.
