Our commitment to the global call to action on racial equality continues.
We have committed to considering and implementing what concrete actions we can take in response, using the avenues and expertise available to us to see how best we can help and support people and to actively challenge discrimination.
We are working together across our global network of people in Clifford Chance and with others outside the firm to help guide our actions in line with our inclusion strategy of change the rules, change the culture, change the lived experience.
This has led to a significant set of targeted and tailored initiatives aimed at delivering change in those three areas, both in our firm and in wider society, including launching a Racial Justice Award, setting partner targets for ethnicity in the UK and US, and consultations with our Black colleagues on how best to support all of our people. Whilst a lot has been done there remains much more to do.
Realising our values requires a permanent campaign and a commitment to continuously champion the world we want to see. Achieving racial justice will benefit all of us but take each of us to continue our commitment and action.
