Ethnicity

Inclusion & diversity

To be the global law firm of choice we believe the rich variety of ethnicity, culture and heritage across the globe should be reflected in the population of our firm.

We believe our current and future success is dependent upon us continuing to build and nurture deeper roots in the communities in which we operate.

Where Diverse Minds Meet

In this podcast series, we highlight and celebrate the diversity of voices, backgrounds and experiences of people across Clifford Chance.

Black History Month

London, UK

Clifford Chance celebrated with two events in our London office hosted by our internal REACH network. The first was an interview with SMADE, creator of Afro Nation Festival and recognised as one of the most successful African entrepreneurs in the UK. He was interviewed by Comedian Kojo Anim from Britain's Got Talent. The second was in aid of World Mental Health Day and we hosted an evening of poetry, performance, and discussion exploring the intersectionality of mental health and ethnicity.

Chinese New Year

London, UK

We celebrated Chinese New Year in the London office with a lion dance, tea tasting and dim sum. The evening was hosted by Jeroen Ouwehand and Paget Dare Bryan, who highlighted some of our China related work in the last year, including advising the Official Receiver and Special Managers of British Steel on the sale of the business and assets to Jingye Steel and Iron, as well as Hautai Securities' GDR listing under the Shanghai-London Stock Connect scheme.

Black History Month

New York, United States

In commemoration of Black History Month Clifford Chance’s Black and Latino subcommitee of the Firm’s Diversity committee is pleased to present an exhibition of works by five artists from the African diaspora. These artist’s practices reveal a diverse range of visual languages and liberating creative practices, articulating some of the ways individual and collective identity is shaped by social, political, historical, geographic, and personal experience. The exhibition makes space for expanded ideas of identity, not as a fixed entity but as a fluid and dynamic expression at the intersection of history and the present. The art will be on show the whole of February in the NY office.

Diversity networks

Across our global network we have a range of committees focussing on ethnicity, culture, race and heritage that reflect the wide variety of peoples who make up our firm. These include the REACH (Race Equality and Celebrating Heritage) committee in the UK, the Black and Latino Committee, and the Asian and Pacific Islanders Committee in the US.
