This award is designed to showcase successful and innovative examples of the promotion of diversity, inclusion and social mobility.

The judges were looking for evidence of organisational commitment to policies which have been put into action for partners, employees or clients, and which demonstrate measurable results.

The judges wanted to see evidence of:

  • innovative examples of best practice
  • demonstrated organisational commitment to inclusion and diversity policies and practices
  • measurable results

Clifford Chance focused on our ability to create tangible culture change and make our firm a more inclusive environment. We prioritised the following in our submission:

a.       Understanding our data

b.       Improving engagement

c.       Listening to colleagues

d.       Understanding lived experiences

Tiernan Brady, Global Director of Inclusion, commented: "Inclusion is not something for someone else it is for all of us and the same is true of this award. The Law Society's "Excellence in Diversity and Inclusion" award is a recognition of the commitment to inclusion that so many people across the firm demonstrate every day. There is still much to do and we are committed to developing innovative and reforming campaigns to deliver an inclusive firm and society.''
