    Diversity and inclusiveness

    Improving our diversity is a key strategic priority.

    We see diversity as a strength and value the fresh perspectives, creative ideas and connections that flow from bringing together people with different backgrounds.

    Attracting and keeping the top talent is vital to our success. Talented people can come from anywhere, so to attract the best we must create a welcoming and supportive environment in which all can flourish. 

    To do this, we are working across our firm to:

    • increase the number of women at senior levels;
    • broaden the firm’s representation among different races and ethnicities; 
    • encourage people to reach their full potential without being restricted by their background;
    • be an employer of choice for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people; 
    • improve our people’s knowledge of other religions and cultures; and
    • support people who have a disability or impairment, or who have family or caring responsibilities.

    Network benefits

    Across our firm, we see the benefits when people with a shared interest or common goal come together and form a network. These could be anything from an improved appreciation of cultural differences to better opportunities for personal and professional development.

    We encourage people who want to share the networking, support and social opportunities that groups offer to join one of our networks, or to set up a new one.

    The firm actively supports the networks established by employees. They include:

    • Christian Fellowship
    • Families’ Network
    • Halo (LGBT network) and Halo Champions
    • Multicultural Employee Network 
    • Women’s Network
