At Clifford Chance we see inclusion as a core value of the firm and also of the law.
We understand that diversity and inclusion are good for our staff and their families, our firm and our clients, and society. We believe that to help achieve these values we have to be champions of, and campaigners for them across our firm, with our clients, and in the world.
Our inclusion & diversity strategy
In our firm
Our goal is to deliver an equality of opportunity, an equality of aspiration and an equality of experience to everyone who works in our firm.
We recognise that a true diversity of talent and experience is an essential ingredient in our success. To be the global law firm of choice in this area we need to be the leaders in this area.
New global and regional gender, ethnicity and LGBT+ targets
As Clifford Chance further increases its focus on its global inclusion strategy - change the rules, change the culture and change the lived experience - new regional targets have been introduced to ensure greater ambition, progress and accountability are embedded across the firm's global network.
Global Managing Partner Matthew Layton commented: "Our new targets will be a powerful catalyst for the change we want to see and I hope they will set a new standard for our industry."
As we try to build a better, more sustainable future, it is the fundamental principles of the law that guide us, as a responsible business: equality and fairness, access to justice, effective regulation and government, and the promotion and protection of human rights.
Our 2020 report demonstrates our commitment to sustainable growth and how it has endured and been strengthened during a period of uncertainty and change.
