It is a priority for us to foster a fully inclusive workplace environment and aim to ensure that different races and ethnicities are well-represented within our firm.
We believe in transparency and are constantly looking for ways to improve and promote equality and therefore report on both our gender and ethnicity pay gap.
Our Religion, Belief and Ethnicity (RBE) Committee meet regularly and work to raise awareness and help to identify ways in which the firm can better support colleagues from different religion/belief and ethnic communities.
Some of our initiatives include:
- Held Diwali events across all UK offices which included traditional treats, henna tattoos, traditional dress and Bollywood dancing
- Promoted notable dates in the different religious calendars; usually with traditional treats and an insight to the history and reason for the event
- Hosted a student and staff event for Black History Month
- Following the murder of George Floyd in America, our RBE Committee were quick to respond with information and resources to help colleagues learn more about key issues and challenges faced by members of the black community
