Introducing Clifford Chance Enable, our disability network

Our UK disability network has recently rebranded from the Disability Action Group to Enable, with an aim to support colleagues with a disability, long term injury or condition, or workplace adjustment to thrive at Clifford Chance, and to provide a safe, inclusive and open environment for them to share their lived experiences. 

Creating a safe, inclusive and open environment for colleagues to share their lived experience has always been at the heart of our strategy and we hope to be able to use the recommendations from PurpleSpace and the outputs from the Lived Experience Forum we held in September to help raise awareness with colleagues about our network, visible and non-visible disabilities, and the support available to them.

On the 3rd December 2020, we proudly joined our global colleagues to mark International Day of Persons with Disabilities, once again joining PurpleSpace in their global movement #PurpleLightUp, which celebrates and draws attention to the economic contribution of the 386 million disabled employees around the world.

Our global network shared messages of support and photos of our offices and people in purple to raise awareness of the importance of disability inclusion. We also took the opportunity to introduce Enable and hosted a panel with the International Paralympic Committee to discuss what organisations need to be thinking about to build back better toward a disability-inclusive, accessible and sustainable post Covid 19 world.
