Clifford Chance


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.

Eliminating mental health stigma

Supporting the mental health and wellbeing of our colleagues is critical to the strong values that we promote at Clifford Chance yet for us to deliver the outcomes we want we need to be relentless in our challenging of the stigma around mental health. The fear of being judged or treated differently however can prevent people from seeking support, and it's only by eliminating stigma that real change can be made.

Global Director for Inclusion Tiernan Brady recently talked to The Global Business Collaboration for Better Workplace Mental Health about how organisations can reduce mental health stigma through targeted campaigns.
