Our people are our greatest asset. We believe that no one should be discriminated against because of their differences, such as age, disability, ethnicity, gender, gender identity and expression, religion or sexual orientation. We recruit, employ and promote regardless of background.
A diverse business delivers better products and services to clients and creates a more positive culture, enabling and encouraging different opinions, mind-sets and backgrounds that can grow and develop a different perspective. Research and our own experience demonstrates that diversity enhances a more inclusive, engaged and innovative culture, which in turn benefits businesses.
As a business, we are enormously proud of our open and supportive culture, which allows everyone to be themselves, but we absolutely recognise that more needs to be done.
Supporting our working parents is something that is very important to us. We offer generous maternity and shared parental leave provisions and offer maternity coaching to all our lawyers and business services managers.
In late 2018, in order to give the topic the necessary focus and senior management accountability, Khai Nguyen was nominated as the partner in charge of diversity.
