Wellbeing

Inclusion & diversity

At Clifford Chance we believe everyone is entitled to the same equality of opportunity and experience. Each of us can face a range of personal, work and societal pressures that can impact our mental health and wellbeing.

We realise that working in a law firm can be a pressurized and demanding environment. Our wellbeing agenda aims to ensure our people are able to recognise and appreciate the importance of maintaining good mental health and in building their resilience and ability to operate healthily and successfully.

Power walks

China

Being in nature allows you to soak up some vitamin D, elevate mood and get chatting to your colleagues outside the office environment. Ro celebrate World Mental Health Day in November 2019, our colleagues in Beijing and Shanghai got together for a power walk in their respective cities – Olympic Park, Beijing and Century Park, Pudong New District, Shanghai.

Team Beijing and families were given Olympic-like medals after they finished the power walk whereas Team Shanghai and families shared a delicious lunch afterwards.

Mental Health Awareness Week

UK

We're celebrating kindness this Mental Health Awareness Week. Particularly now, when many of us may be feeling alone, acts of kindness can bring us together and help us stay connected. Our Mental Health First Aiders - Corrina Foster, Maxine Purcell, Emma Jarman, Dominic Poth, Jodie Sidders, Ashika Patel, Amanda Oakley and Stephanie Dare - share random acts of kindness they've seen or experienced during lockdown.

Mindful Business Charter

UK

The intention of the Mindful Business Charter is to remove unnecessary sources of stress and promote better mental health and wellbeing in the workplace. We recognise that there will be times and transactions when long-hours and stress cannot be avoided, but this isn’t always the case, and we want it to become the exception rather than the rule. In this way, the Charter is brave and commercial. It recognises that we cannot remove all sources of stress, nor will change happen overnight – but as a business community we have a responsibility to try do things differently.

Clifford Chance is a signatory of the Mindful Business Charter.

Movember

Hong Kong, Singapore and Sydney

A group of colleagues from our Hong Kong, Singapore and Sydney offices raised over US$28,000 (in local currencies) in November after ditching the razor in the name of Movember.

The annual event, which runs throughout November, sees men grow moustaches to help raise awareness of male health issues like prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide.

The Hong Kong and Singapore offices will use the funds they raised to support the Hong Kong Cancer Fund and the Singapore Cancer Society respectively, while in Australia, the money raised will be used to support projects funded by the Movember Foundation or through the charity's men's health partners.
